SPLC Connect


Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to invite you to join us in Seattle for SPLC Connect: A Buyer-Supplier Matchmaking Event on May 26, 2015 at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center.

As Purchasing Members of the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council, our goal is to create an event that will let all of us meet with suppliers who can help our organizations make genuine improvements in our sustainability performance. Held the day before the Council’s 2015 Summit, this event will add value to your trip and insure that you are able to connect one-on-one with innovative suppliers to explore potential business.

One of the unique features of this event is that only suppliers that have earned the esteem of sustainability-oriented purchasing professionals like you will be invited to participate. The suppliers will be nominated by you and then further screened by a panel of SPLC Purchaser members to insure that only quality suppliers relevant to your needs will participate in the matchmaking.


Features of SPLC Connect

  • One-on-ones between buyers and suppliers
  • Roundtable Presentations – pre-scheduled and drop-in
  • Roundtable Discussions – pre-scheduled and drop-in, and a
  • Networking Dinner Reception


Pacific Gas & Electric’s (PG&E’s) Supplier Sustainability and Diversity Program is the Title Sponsor of SPLC Connect, and King County’s Procurement and Contract Services is also a sponsor. We are both proud that our organizations are helping make this event free for all purchasers to attend and are excited to introduce this new matchmaking element to our SPLC Summit!

Please consider joining us in Seattle on Tuesday, May 26th, and please think of which suppliers have earned your esteem for the way they advance sustainability. There are additional sponsorship opportunities available starting at $1,500 and we would welcome more sponsors to help us make this the best possible event. If you are interested in attending or sponsoring, please submit your information via the “Tell Us!” button on the SPLC Connect website.
Please forward this invitation to your colleagues, both at your organization and at other organizations. Thank you and looking forward to seeing you in Seattle.
