Fellows' Events

Our newly expanded portfolio of regular events dedicated to Fellows of CIPS provide an excellent opportunity for you to meet and be inspired with thought provoking discussions on key issues, and to exchange ideas and experiences. Held in exclusive and stylish venues, the events are designed to be interactive and to encourage learning, discussion and debate through presentations by senior procurement leaders, opportunities to build contacts, and restaurant dining.

Our active and growing Fellows’ LinkedIn group has over 400 members and is open to all Fellows. This essential networking tool can help you to engage with senior procurement professionals online, sharing knowledge, insights and opportunities.

Previous fellows events and details about the CIPS Fellows group are available here.

Events Terms and Conditions

In recognition of our most senior members position in the profession, CIPS is pleased to be able to extend a special invitation to Fellows to attend the Annual Dinner at the exclusive rate of £97.50 exclusive of vat (which is more than 50% off the individual ticket price).

CPD 2

This most prestigious event in the CIPS calendar is an ideal opportunity for you to network with your peers and make new contacts.  We have extended the pre-dinner drinks reception which offers you the chance to meet with your President for 2016 Richard Masser FCIPS and David Noble FCIPS, Group CEO.

Guest speaker for the evening is Levison Wood, an explorer, writer and photographer.  He is also an ex-army officer who, after co-founding his own business, decided to trek the entire length of the River Nile, the first person documented to do so.  Over nine months he journeyed through desert and jungle, across war zones and through remote villages.  In speeches, Lev, accompanied by his own awe-inspiring photos, speaks about the lessons learnt from his epic journeys; the personal motivation and risk, and also observations on how others survive. 

Places are very limited so book now to ensure your place.

The cost to attend this event is £97.50 + VAT, which will be added at the end of the booking process.  Please note, there is a 2% surcharge for credit card bookings.

Those of a certain age will remember the thrill of driving one of the original small Mini’s with fond memories of this little gem. So, it’s no wonder since it’s relaunch by BMW in 2001 these innovative fun cars have literally been flying off the production line with over 5.5million sold worldwide. Once again the Fellows Committee gives you a unique opportunity to learn more Mini production and visit the futuristic new £750m body shop. An incredible 1,000 robots build cars before your eyes with one coming off the production conveyor every 68 seconds.
This event truly lives our moto – Amazing Speakers, Amazing Places - so don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about BMW procurement and see first-hand a Mini being built. A trip round the museum and the chance to network with your peers over refreshments complete the fantastic evening.
