Get involved with NEC activities

In 2023, NEC has:

  • Hosted approximately 3,000 people for our webinar series.
  • Welcomed approximately 3,600 new followers to our LinkedIn page,
  • Connected over a thousand new community members to the NEC forum.

Whether you're new to NEC or an experienced practitioner, there are a number of ways you can connect with and join our global community of supportive members. One of the first ways in 2024 is our upcoming webinar on the 2023 NEC Client of the Year - the NHS and its ProCure23 framework.

Attend our flagship annual event

The 2023 NEC Annual Conference, brand new Martin Barnes Awards Ceremony, and recent Asia-Pacific conference were all amazing events, bringing together over 500 people to celebrate NEC's 30th anniversary, learn more about best practice and network with other NEC users. Booking is now open for the 2024 Annual Conference and 2024 Awards Ceremony, so don't miss out!
