CPC delegates enjoy another successful SAAS event


Thank you to everyone who visited us in the CPL Group's CPL Village, sponsored by Wella Company, at the recent Schools and Academies Show (SAAS) - the gathering at ExCeL London was our most successful event to date.

The CPL Village brought together 15 framework suppliers, alongside representatives from CPC, Tenet and CPL Learning, creating an exciting procurement community at the SAAS, which happens twice a year; once in London in May and again in Birmingham in November.

With thousands of delegates from schools and academies across the UK in attendance, the CPL Village was busy with a steady stream of traffic throughout the day and our CPC team, alongside sister brand Tenet Education Services, were on hand to provide procurement advice, money-saving techniques and information on how the Group can support your procurement journey, whatever it may be.

This is not to mention discussion of our charitable efforts, grant funding opportunities and all the procurement training avenues, webinars and resources offered via our CPL Learning arm.

Senior National Account Manager & UK Key Account Capability, Mark Allison of CPL Village main sponsor Wella Professionals said, "It was a pleasure to support the CPL Group on such a fabulous and productive day at the Schools & Academies Show.

“We are keen to look for innovative ways in which we can shape the future of the hair industry and its many partnerships.

“We eagerly look forward to collaborating at the next Schools and Academies Show, to showcase to the entire education sector the many career opportunities the hair industry has to offer".

The next SAAS takes place in Birmingham on the 22nd November and exhibitor spaces as part of the CPL Village are already filling up, so please don’t hesitate to contact Rana Holland and find out more about the opportunities available at this event.
