A call to PurchasingB2B’s readers, partners, advertisers, suppliers, and associations: Let’s get the word out that June 14th is National Purchaser Day!

It’s a great way to say “Thank You” to purchasers, procurement and supply chain management professionals for the tremendous value they bring, and the contributions they make, to their organizations, communities, and the economy.

Businesses, Manufacturing, Government: Recognize your own purchaser(s) or procurement team, or just bring attention to this day, by sending out tweets such as:

  • “To honour those who #purchase everything we need for success, we are happy to recognize #NationalPurchaserDay this June 14th @purchasingb2b.                            
  • “This June 14th, we say thank you to our #purchasing team for #NationalPurchaserDay. Don’t forget to hug your #purchaser! @purchasingb2b.”

Purchasers, procurement and supply chain management professionals: Give a shout-out for your own profession through tweets such as these:

  • “Each day, we’re working to create value for our organizations. Celebrate #NationalPurchaserDay on June 14! @purchasingb2b.”
  • “If you need it, we’re here to source it! #Purchasers celebrate #NationalPurchaserDay on June 14! @purchasingb2b

And if you’re planning on attending the Supply Chain Management Association’s National Conference in St. John’s, June 13-15, be sure to drop by the PurchasingB2B on June 14th because that’s where the party for National Purchaser Day will be happening!

To top it all off, we’re giving our partners the chance to acknowledge the impact and influence that PurchasingB2B has had on the Canadian supply chain community for over 60 years.

PurchasingB2B’s 60th Anniversary Issue – June 2018

“Congratulations on 60 Years of Publishing!”

PurchasingB2B’s partners, advertisers, suppliers, and associations: Place a “Congratulations” ad in PurchasingB2B’s special commemorative issue. You can use this ad to give a shout-out to your own purchasing, procurement, or supply chain management professional or team. This is a great time to say, “I Love Purchasing!” and to recognize the value that purchasing brings to your own business.

We’re providing a special 1x rate for this ad placement and are offering this as a bonus ad to any advertiser who books 3 or more ads in 2018 prior to April 30th.

We’re pretty excited about what we have in store for our readers and partners this year. And we’d love to have you join in the fun!
