14th Annual Supplier Night

May 14, 2014

ISM-SFV hosted our fourteenth annual Supplier Night and trade show  to support our Elaine Whittington Scholarship Program.  One goal of Supplier Night was to offer members and guests an opportunity to network with 50 – 100 top local suppliers.  The event was held May 14, 2014 at the Odyssey Restaurant, 15600 Odyssey Dr., Granada Hills, CA 91344.

As in prior years, Suppliers displayed their products or services and networked with members and guests who were professional buyers and supply chain professionals.  Dinner was provided and there were fabulous door prizes, all for just $15. This event provided attendees the opportunity to meet with many suppliers and gain industry knowledge, competitive advantage, new ideas, and new sources of materials and services. Suppliers were given the opportunity to purchase a link from this website to their own home page.

The ISM-SFV Grand Prize was a new Apple iPad AIR!

Supplier Support
ISM-SFV encourages all members to support those Suppliers who attended Supplier Night. What about your key Suppliers? ISM-SFV needs your help for next year. Please ask your key Suppliers to attend next years Supplier Night event. Attendance by your key Suppliers will give your Suppliers an opportunity to network with key Supply Chain and Supplier Management professionals from various companies. In addition, the Supplier Night event helps sponsor our scholarship fund, so we can help support a deserving student’s education.
