CPL Village returns to Schools & Academies Show at the NEC


By Toby Belshaw

The second and final Schools & Academies Show of 2023 will take place at the NEC on Wednesday 22nd November.

Our experts will be on hand in the CPL Village to discuss your procurement requirements and how we can offer you support.

The CPL Village will be at the heart of the action, and we are delighted announce its main sponsor will be Wella Professionals.

Wella are providing outstanding support for a second successive SAAS, following our successful collaboration in London in May.

We are thrilled to also share that, as well as being one of the exhibitors, Aon will be sponsoring this year’s Village barista station.

The station will offer a welcome opportunity to sit down, rest up and chat procurement with our team, over a freshly-made brew.

There will also be a new selfie booth at the CPL Village, giving visitors the chance to capture a fun-filled moment of their visit.

The roll call of confirmed CPL Village exhibitors is currently as follows:

Wella Professionals (Main Sponsor) 




CLC Facilities

Clean Event Services


Forbes Solicitors


Lewis & Graves





Yess Electrical

Tenet Education Services will also be represented at the CPL Village on 22nd November, with staff on site to discuss Tenet's procurement consultancy and associated offerings, including managed procurement services and on demand tender support.
