Digital Marketplace events give us the opportunity to educate users, answer questions from buyers and suppliers as well as gather feedback. It also gives attendees the opportunity to meet the Digital Marketplace team.
Alongside the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and techUK, we ran 14 workshops in 7 UK cities in August and September. The aim was to show buyers how to procure what they need, simply and quickly via the Digital Marketplace, and educate suppliers on how to sell to government.
Each event included:
- information about the Digital Marketplace
- a presentation on how to work in an agile way
- advice on how to buy or sell
- a relevant speaker sharing their experience of buying or supplying
- a question and answer session
What past attendees have said
“The event helped me understand the context and flexibility better that I'd been able to interpret from the website. Being able to ask questions and get some clarification was also useful.”
“It was great to meet other users, and put a face to team members.”
“Listening to the speakers helped me to understand the difference between G-Cloud and the Digital Services framework. The links to additional guidance that were provided in the presentation have proved most useful.”
