The IPG hosts annual Members’ Dinner

Published:  29 November, 2016

Buying group The IPG recently held its annual Members' Dinner at the Alexandra House Hotel in Wiltshire.

Attended by members and suppliers alike, The IPG’s managing director Robin Beal and marketing manager Stephanie Bolton outlined the growth in which the buying group continues to deliver for its members, as well as a tantalising hint at more news on the Group’s exciting plans for 2017.

“Our Members’ Dinner is a chance to say thank you for the support of our members, as well as a chance to look to the future and the strategy we have in place to grow their businesses,” explained Mr Beal. “We will continue to offer the best possible deals and tailored support as our membership grows, we will build more strong, long-term relationships with suppliers so that our members not only compete, but thrive.”

In just three years The IPG has grown to over 130 members with a combined turnover of £266m and the evening's theme of innovation and growth was humorously brought alive by entrepreneur Shed Simove. The buying group also announced that its Members’ Dinner in 2017 will be taking place at the Mercedes Benz World in Surrey.
