IBC Buying Group Conference 2022
We had a fantastic day at the Independent Buying Consortium (IBC) Buying Group’s first exhibition conference and dinner on the 29th September, overlooking the legendary Silverstone race circuit in Northamptonshire. The space brought together hundreds of IBC suppliers and members for a great day of meeting and building relationships with new and existing customers.
The inaugural conference provided a great opportunity for IBC supplier partners to showcase their products and services, as well as highlighting the additional services, support and new opportunities that being a part of the IBC will bring. Members were able to take advantage of exclusive conference only prices and deals, including free giveaways! The day concluded with a gala dinner and awards ceremony, where suppliers and members came together again to celebrate the new relationships and examples of innovation from the past year. We would like to extend our thanks to the organisers for a brilliant day!
