Irongate to host procurement event

Chamber member Irongate Group will be hosting a major procurement event at Derby's iPro Stadium later this year.

With an event expected to rival the top procurement shows, over 50 leading business supply brands are likely to exhibit at Irongate Live 2015 on 8 October.

There will be six interactive zones at Irongate Live, each dedicated to showing the latest products, technology, services and procurement solutions for business.

Some of the business sectors covered include ofice products, facilities management, workwear and PPE, office furniture, promotional merchandise, corporate gifting, print and document management.

“We speak to companies everyday who can’t find what they need or are frustrated by how much time they spend dealing with different suppliers and processing different invoices,” says Adam Noble, Managing Director at Irongate Group.

“Irongate Live is an opportunity for anyone involved in buying essential products and services for their business to speak to our team to find out how we can make their jobs easier and reduce the amount their business spends on these items.

“It’s a relaxed atmosphere with loads of stuff going on all day. We hosted a similar event in 2013 which was fantastic, but this year it’s evolved into something even bigger and more exciting. We’ve got 52 suppliers coming along with some great new products and there’s loads of competitions and prizes to get involved with, including a Crystal Maze style cash cube game.”

Visitors registering to attend the show before 28 August will be entered into a prize draw to win an Amazon Fire HD tablet.

Irongate Group recently held an event to celebrate the long service of some employees.

More than a third of its 100-strong workforce has been with the company for ten years or more and the firm has, this year, taken on three graduates and two apprentices to take payroll up to three figures.

“As a business born and bred in Derby, we like giving something back, so, we create jobs for Derby people," said Adam.
