The Voice of Packaging in the Heart of the Country


‘Ask the awkward question’ to industry leading buying experts from Kimberly Clark, Brunel Healthcare, Premier Foods(ex) & AB InBev (ex)


Here is your opportunity to ask the questions which might otherwise seem inappropriate or uncomfortable with a live customer. We are providing a unique opportunity to pose questions (either anonymously or in person) which will help you understand the mindset behind procurement requests, which at times might seem unreasonable.


We hope to cover questions surrounding:

  • the continuing growth of payment terms.
  • the increasing requirement for transparency in costing.
  • the ways in which suppliers can engage with their customers better to expedite development activities.
  • to name a few, although this is an open session…..

Please feel free to ask questions yourself during the event, or submit your questions to the organisers to propose on your behalf.


Buffet and refreshments will be served.

The event is FREE but places will be limited, so please respond early to be assured of a place.


Date:    Thursday 15th December 2016 - 6.00pm for 6.30pm (finishing around 9.00pm).

We would expect the panel session to conclude at 20:00 with an hour for networking thereafter.

Address:   Benchmark Consulting Global Ltd, C/o Pure Offices, Suite 43-45, Lake View Drive, Sherwood Park, Nottingham. NG15 0DT

Non-members are welcome.  We look forward to seeing you there.
