The Unite Students procurement department are holding their second 'Innovation Day'.
Both new and existing suppliers will be given a 20 minute slot to pitch new and innovative services and products directly to our procurement team.
We are looking for things which benefit and enhance the service we provide to the students who make their home with us and whose welfare, comfort and happiness underpins everything we do.
From external building materials to internal furniture and fittings, from waste management solutions to fire safety equipment – if your business has something new and innovative to offer then we would love to meet you.
For more information about the day, and the buyers themselves, please visit the Innovation Day webpage.
In order to secure a place at the day, suppliers are asked to make a £100 donation to the Penny Brohn charity via our Just Giving page - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/US-InnovationDay.
