It is less than a week to go until the CIPS Supply Management Awards get under way, and the excitement is building.
More than a thousand people from the world of procurement are expected at the glittering event, at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane on 11 September, to celebrate the best of the profession.
In the SM offices there has been much discussion involving ball gowns, and across the country dinner jackets are being dusted off in preparation for the premier procurement event of the year.
Comic actor Stephen Mangan will be hosting the festivities, presenting 14 awards that recognise those organisations and individuals who have gone the extra mile in their work.
Diets will be forgotten for the evening as guests tuck into a sumptuous three-course meal and quaff 450 bottles of champagne, before taking to the dance floor to burn off some calories.
And to help get toes tapping live band The Bright Sparks will get the music under way with a collection of high energy pop and rock covers.
However, the best part of all is that there are still a few precious tickets left. So to avoid disappointment, you know what to do. Book your table now by clicking here, call +44 (0)20 7880 7555 or click here to email.
