The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) has appointed Trinity Event Solutions as their venue-finding partner for a three-year period. The contract was awarded following a five-way pitch and is estimated to include an average of 140 venue bookings each year.
Trinity will be sourcing and booking UK and International venues and handling multiple level negotiation support for the Institute. Venue bookings will be from several departments within CIPS and will facilitate training courses, examinations, graduation events, networking events and accommodation.
Scott Lewis, procurement officer, CIPS said: “Trinity Event Solutions really stood out to us; they are a really good cultural fit with our organisation, and we warmed to their attitude and way of working. They have a great CSR policy and staff ethos, which again fits with our approach. Trinity demonstrated excellence in the procurement process too, matching our current methods and procedures and therefore facilitating a smooth transition. We will greatly enjoy working with the Trinity team.”
Jacqui Kavanagh, CEO, Trinity Event Solutions said: “Our venue finding process is completely transparent so it is very appealing to a procurement department. The continued investment we make in technology and the creative approach we take to venue finding also makes us standout. We will be using our venue expertise, contract negotiation experience and local area knowledge to find CIPS the right venues for their events in order to support their team to create the very best events possible. We are very much looking forward to working in partnership with the many different departments throughout CIPS.”
