Institute For Supply Management  – San Fernando Valley’s

15th Annual Supplier Night

May 13, 2015

ISM-SFV hosted our fifteenth annual Supplier Night and trade show to support our Elaine Whittington Scholarship Program.  One of the key goals of Supplier Night is to offer members and guests an opportunity to network with 50 – 100 top local suppliers.  The event was held on May 13, 2015 at the fabulous Odyssey Restaurant, 15600 Odyssey Dr., Granada Hills, CA 91344.

An evening of gorgeous views, networking and honoring two outstanding students. This year the Mayors office presented the Supplier Night Committee congratulatory certificates from the City of Los Angeles. One of the recipients, Masis Geragosian, was present to accept his Certificate of Achievement and scholarship from the Institute for Supply Management San Fernando Valley. Great raffle prizes, dinner and a fifty-fifty raffle were just a few of the many highlights of the evening

As in prior years, Suppliers displayed their products or services and networked with members and guests who are professional procurement managers, buyers and other supply chain professionals.  Dinner and fabulous door prizes were included 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.

Supplier Support

ISM-SFV encouraged all members to support those Suppliers who attended the Supplier Night. ISM-SFV requested and asked key Suppliers to attend this year’s Supplier Night. Attendance by the key Suppliers gave them an opportunity to network with key Supply Chain and Supplier Management professionals from various companies. In addition, the Supplier Night event helped sponsor our scholarship fund, so that we can help support a deserving student’s education.
