TORONTO — Approximately 1,000 hotel decision-makers attended Avendra’s Supplier Show at the Royal York Hotel earlier this month to sample products, network and discover what’s new in the supply world from Avendra suppliers.
The sixth annual supplier show, which rotates between Montreal and Toronto, featured 133 vendors ranging from foodstuffs to amenities to large equipment. The all-day event has become a popular destination for the hotel community to get better educated in a single venue about the breadth of products and services offered by Avendra suppliers.
“As the leading procurement services provider in the hospitality industry, not only do we aggregate and leverage the purchasing volume of our customers to create significant buying power and, consequently, to negotiate the best possible deals with key suppliers, we also invest in value-added services for our customers that they would not invest in to the same extent. This includes contracting expertise, enhanced supplier management, multi-tiered customer support, quality assurance, price-audit capabilities and in-depth data analysis,” said Afsar Khan, director, Field Support & Customer Relations Central & Eastern Canada, Avendra. “This event is just one more example of how we go above and beyond to earn our customer’s business. In fact, this is our sixth year organizing the event and every year it keeps getting bigger and better. It’s a great opportunity for our clients to learn more about Avendra’s innovative programs, to sample and see new products up-close and to speak with our suppliers about how to successfully grow their businesses. It truly is a win-win for everyone.”
