Supplier Conference and Awards 2016

By Andrew, also posted in News on

Adnams Supplier Conference 2016On Thursday 23 June Adnams held its inaugural Conference and Awards at The Enterprise Center at The University of East Anglia. This was an opportunity for the Adnams team to talk to our suppliers all together as well as help our suppliers to better understand how we can all work together to enable us to continue offer great service and products to all of our customers. We had over fifty suppliers attend the conference which is a great turnout given that some of these traveled from Europe to enable them to attend. During the course of the day we had a number of talks facilitated by journalist Jonathan Wills, including a presentation by Dr Andy Wood, Adnams CEO, and Mr Mike Barry, Plan A Director for Marks & Spencer. It was also the opportunity for our suppliers to talk to members of the senior management team at Adnams. The afternoon was the chance for Adnams to reward a number of our suppliers with special awards in line with Adnams' own values. The overall winner of the 2016 Supplier Awards was Mantis World Clothing which supply all of the clothing items Adnams' sells within our shops and online. Mantis World undertake a number of initiatives in and around its factories to ensure that they assist the local community as well as looking to use recycled materials within their clothes. After the great success of this event we will be looking to make this an annual event and will be sending all of our suppliers details of the 2017 event in early September.
