Spend Matters 1st Anniversary Event

We celebrated the first anniversary of Spend Matters UK / Europe last week. Thanks again to everyone who helped make it a very enjoyable and interesting first year -  readers, contributors and our esteemed sponsors, Intenda, Trade Extensions, Emptoris, BravoSolution, Hubwoo, Achilles, American Express, CombineNet and Spikes Cavell.

Jason Busch is in the UK next week, so to celebrate the anniversary, we are holding our 1st Anniversary Event next Thursday, November 10th, 1830-2230 hrs, at a venue in Twickenham (West London).  Cake! Balloons! Music!

There will be a bit of serious stuff with Jason talking about his view of where procurement is going, followed by live music from an all-star band put together by Dom O 'Riley of Andomise, and then the excellent Front Covers, who some of you will know from CIPS SM Awards fame, led by Mr David Smith, our new CIPS President.

The lead sponsors for the evening are the lovely people at Coupa (see here and here for more about them) - the first round is on them! And the bands appear courtesy of (the also lovely) Science Warehouse (see here) and Andomise.

So.. two things. We've invited lots of people from the procurement world, people who have helped us, our sponsors and so on. If you haven't received an invite (and think you should), our apologies but we have had problems getting the emails through the some mailboxes! They probably think we've spammers.. so please don't be offended, we may well have tried to get through to you. There are 50+ people we haven't heard back from who we have "invited"!

Secondly, we've had a great response but we have a few tickets left* - so if you would like to come along, meet us and lots of other interesting procurement folk, (free food too..), then please drop me an email at psmith@spendmatters.com.  We'll get back to you with full details - we can't just say "come along on the night" given the venue obviously has limited capacity, and we have to order the food!

Hope to see you next week..

(*Obviously if we get too many replies we'll have to do a draw or something..)
