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.
