Where: The University of Leeds Exhibition Centre
When: Tuesday 22nd March, 10:00 – 15:00

The Suppliers Easter Fair 2016 takes place in our Exhibition Centre and all staff at the University are invited for an opportunity to speak to over 50 exhibitors; including colleagues from MEETinLEEDS, Great Food at Leeds, The Edge and The Print & Copy Bureau who are all on hand to answer questions about their support and services.

The Suppliers Fair has been a successful, well attended event in the University’s calendar for the last 15 years, and is one of the largest events of its kind within the UK. Organised by MEETinLEEDS, the University of Leeds’ conference service, and in collaboration with the Finance & Procurement Department. The event provides a unique opportunity for staff to speak to suppliers directly enabling them to highlight, explain and showcase their products and services in a tailor made forum.

Once again this year we will have local suppliers selling treats and gifts so please bring along your bags and wallets and perhaps you can treat a colleague or pick up an Easter gift.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Tash Meet in Leeds

What takes 13 days, 3 exhibitions, 6 drink receptions, 4 conference dinners, 1658 delegates & a partridge in a pear tree*?

Is this the latest edition of a Tom Cruise franchise, I hear you ask…

No, this is another successful conference season facilitated by MEETinLEEDS Event Managers in collaboration with Great Food at Leeds.

Aside from being about egg box creations, Bank Holidays & lots of chocolate – Easter is one of the busiest times for the University in terms of conferences and events and this year was no different. The conference team facilitated 8 conferences ranging from the well-known University’s Suppliers Easter Fair to the I-can’t-even-hope-to-understand likes of the 11th Photovoltaic Science, Application & Technology Conference.

What our team lacks in photovoltaic knowledge we make up for in the specialist knowledge of conference facilitation.

Thankfully, what our team lacks in photovoltaic knowledge we make up for in the specialist knowledge of conference facilitation. With so many events taking place over the same few days it is especially important that we ensure all visitors know exactly where they are meant to be and when, so that they have the best possible journey to their conference and welcome from the University which we call home!

Our team are dedicated to ensure that each conference has a fantastic experience on the University campus and hope that in the future if they can return to us, they do.

But don’t take my word for it, check out our twitter feed @meetinleeds.  Here are just a few comments which have been tweeted this Easter:

 

So if you have a conference or event you need help with (and Ethan Hunt isn’t available) turn Mission Impossible into MEETinLEEDS and give us a shout.

So the 8th of April has been and gone, and the new and improved Suppliers Easter Fair 2014 (previously known as the Suppliers Exhibition) was a great success.

The suppliers and departments in attendance had the chance to develop their contacts and relationships with University staff and try some of the delicious catering on offer from the Deli(very) team and also see first-hand what the MEETinLEEDS team can offer as part of an Event Managed Exhibition.

This year we gave the event a facelift: the Suppliers Easter Fair included Fairtrade & Farmers Market style stalls giving attendees the opportunity pick up a few Easter treats while networking with existing and new suppliers.

 

Suppliers-Blog-in-post-photoHead of Environmental Sustainability, Louise Ellis, kicked us off on the day and then it was over to me and the rest of the MEETinLEEDS team to hand out Fairtrade Choc- Affair Easter lollies to the first 200 arrivals. Over 500 people attended the event and generated a fun and relaxed atmosphere, which was added to by the attendance of many Post-Graduate students, who will be the future faces of the University and also procurers of goods and services.

Feedback from external companies has been excellent; we have had many emails from the suppliers containing many kind words, and have even secured 10 bookings for next year!

A massive thank you to everyone who got involved and roll on next year, where we anticipate an even higher number of people through the door!
