One thousand attend annual Supplier Show

More than 1,000 attended the 2017 annual supplier show June 1 in Barton Hall.


More than 1,000 attended the 2017 annual supplier show June 1 in Barton Hall, hosted by Procurement and Payment Services. The event provided an opportunity for members of the Cornell community to meet Cornell’s contract suppliers, learn about their products and services, and hear about the savings and efficiencies they provide – as well as win door prizes.

Nearly 100 suppliers were on hand, from printers and car dealerships, to health care, electrical, laboratory and business suppliers; food vendors, caterers and grocers; and communications, technology and energy providers. Many provided give-aways and demonstrations as well as information.

The day preceding the show, the sixth annual Supplier Recognition Awards were presented to acknowledge off-campus suppliers who have performed best in the areas of product and service quality, pricing, order fulfillment, customer satisfaction and social responsibility.

Top performers for the Supplier Recognition Awards for 2017 were: Airgas USA LLC; Casella Waste Systems; Friedman Electric Supply; Laboratory Products Sales; Ricoh; Sedgwick Business Interiors; The Computing Center; Verizon Wireless; and VWR. Receiving honorable mention were: CDWG; Eagle Envelope Company; Grainger; Krackeler Scientific Inc.; Maines Paper & Food Service Inc.; and W.B. Mason.

Participating in the Supplier Show were such Cornell departments as Fleet Services, Print Services, CIT Custom Development, R5 Operations, the Cornell Store, Campus to Campus Bus, IT Training, Mail Services, Energy and Sustainability, the Statler Hotel – and Procurement and Payment Services.
