CARY, N.C. -- January 9, 2014

SciQuest (NASDAQ: SQI), a leading provider of cloud-based business automation
solutions for spend management, today announced the lineup for NextLevel 2014
– the premier event in the procurement industry. Taking place February 23-26
at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida,
NextLevel 2014 will feature customer success stories, leading spend management
industry influencers and demonstrations of SciQuest’s award-winning
technology. Attendees will have access to spend management best practices,
exceptional networking opportunities with the sharpest minds in the industry,
and will also have the opportunity to participate in best-in-class training.

Based on this year’s event theme “Quest for the Best,” NextLevel 2014 will
focus on the issues that matter most to spend management professionals trying
to turn spending into a source of strategic savings. The agenda features
topics related to spend analysis, advanced sourcing, supplier management,
contract management and eProcurement. Case studies and presentations will span
a wide range of vertical industries, including commercial, education, life
sciences and government.

Highlights of NextLevel 2014 will include a keynote address by Mike Eruzione,
the heroic captain of the 1980 United States Men’s Olympic Hockey team. In
addition to customer presentations from organizations such as BioGen, Eli
Lilly, Johnson & Johnson, Kellogg’s, Office Depot, Wendy’s QSCC and various
universities and state governments, attendees will hear from leading
procurement and spend management experts from firms including Gartner,
Forrester, Paystream Advisors and Spend Matters.

“Over the past several years, SciQuest has been incredibly active in the
market, developing an end-to-end set of solutions through organic growth and
acquisition,” said Jason Busch, executive editor and managing research
director at Spend Matters. “In addition to the excellent networking, one of
the reasons I always look forward to NextLevel is gaining a deeper
understanding of SciQuest’s roadmap and vision.”

Once again, NextLevel attendees can download the conference smartphone app by
searching for “NextLevel 2014” in the Apple App Store, BlackBerry World, or
Google Play, or download directly from the App Download Page at The app, which contains the conference
agenda, session descriptions, interactive venue maps and speaker bios, will
help attendees manage their schedule, select the sessions that interest them
most and communicate and network with fellow conference-goers.

“Over the past several years, NextLevel has served as the most illuminating
window into the future of procurement and spend management, and I expect that
to be the case this year,” said Stephen Wiehe, president & CEO at SciQuest.
“The growth of NextLevel has mirrored the growth of the company, and this year
we’re excited to welcome customers of CombineNet to the event. As SciQuest’s
set of solutions broadens, NextLevel provides a snapshot not only of our
roadmap, but a good touch point with our customer base made up of some of the
most innovative procurement executives in the industry. As always, I expect to
learn more than I teach at the event.”
