BALPPA are excited to announce The Power of Purchasing Seminar – a new seminar unique to our industry!

In conjunction with new BALPPA Members Purchasing For Parks and Prestige Homeseeker Park & Leisure Homes, we will be holding our first ‘Smart Purchasing’ seminar on the 17th October.

We have an informative schedule planned for the delegates, including purchasing top tips, theme park diversification, managing and reducing energy costs, a case study based on an attraction and a tour of the Prestige Factory.

This event is FREE for BALPPA Members to attend and will give you some great insights and knowledge on making efficiencies within your business.

What you will learn:

  • Top tips to identify & deliver costs savings
  • Identify purchasing spend areas that deliver the biggest cost savings
  • Learn about the process of planning, developing and diversifying into a new glamping or holiday park
  • Find out about the difference between purchasing commercial grade and retail products
  • Understand the legal requirement & regulatory purchasing requirements

You will also have the opportunity to win a £100 of John Lewis vouchers or a comprehensive and free ‘health check’ on your current purchasing spend.

Free lunch and goodie bags are also included.
