The Purchasing and Insurance Office are hosting a Suppliers' Fair on 16 November in Panorama Suites 1 and 2 in Rootes Social Building. As well as representatives from University internal suppliers such as Warwick Print, Warwick Conferences and Unitemps there will also be external suppliers including Aubrey Allen, Browns of Rugby and BOC Gases. There will be a wide range of commodities available. Therefore, whatever your department’s supply needs there is sure to be something for everyone.
The event is being held to give everyone the opportunity to meet contracted and approved suppliers to the University. Buyers and potential buyers will be able to meet and familiarise themselves with the supply companies and have the opportunity to discuss any issues, or to seek advice, on products/services.
The fair is open to all members of staff and is being held between 11.30 a.m. until 2.30 p.m. A buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided. A shuttle bus service to the event will be available for departments located at Westwood, Gibbet Hill, University House and Walsgrave Hospital.
The minibus shuttle service will operate from the following pick up points:
Westwood - Between the Avon Building and the Refectory
University House - Outside the main entrance
Gibbet Hill - From the Medical School arch
A minibus service to bring in staff from Warwick HRI has been arranged for 11.00 am. There is also a minibus service arranged to collect University staff from the Clinical Sciences Building at Walsgrave Hospital for 11.30 a.m.
The minibuses will be circling between the three main pick up points on campus so there should be one at each stop every five minutes. There will also be a DHL taxi providing trips to and from the Rootes Social Building.
Freebies will be on offer and there will also be a jazz band for additional entertainment. The Suppliers' Fair promises to be an enjoyable event for all. The Purchasing and Insurance Office would love to see as many people in attendance as possible.
The Purchasing and Insurance Offiice will also be holding a raffle at the fair, in aid of Children in Need. There are many prizes to be won including a digital camera, a remote-controlled truck, wine, meat hampers and flowers.For further information
