Many thanks to everyone who attended the Queen’s Preferred Supplier Show 2013 at the Bioscience Complex Atrium. 

The event was a great success.  It was an excellent opportunity to meet with customer service representatives and learn more about their products and services  It was also a great chance for those of us in Strategic Procurement Services to meet with the Queen's Community.
