One of the big challenges for small business is connecting with the right industry players to help you get your operation to the next level.

The 6th Annual Smart Procurement World Conference in Cape Town is taking place from April 8 - 10 at GrandWest and it is an ideal platform for business owners to meet those with buying power who sign off on big tenders that could be the difference between a small business sinking or swimming.

The conference has three key elements including a brand new one to help black-owned transformative businesses network with the right professionals.
