Buyers Meeting Point's New Sponsors Include Leaders in Education, Innovation, and Supplier Discovery

Buyers Meeting Point is pleased to announce the addition of four new sponsors in the third quarter of 2012, bringing the number of new sponsors this year to ten.

    BOSTON, MA, October 17, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The American Purchasing Society, Denali Group, Procurement Academy, and ThomasNet all recognize the value of working with an organization dedicated to the education and advancement of all procurement professionals. The successful reception of the Buyers Meeting Point sponsorship program validates Buyers Meeting Point's value proposition and trusted role in the procurement community.

Buyers Meeting Point serves as a facilitator and a filter for procurement professionals at all levels, helping them wade through the large volume of content, events and resources available to them and make decisions about where to invest their scarce development time. Having sponsors allows Buyers Meeting Point to serve the procurement community in this capacity at no charge to individuals or their companies.

"We pride ourselves on being an objective resource for our audience," said Buyers Meeting Point Co-founder and co-owner Cindy Allen-Murphy. "While we do have marketing interests, we will not exclusively represent any one focus area. We have always been very clear about separating our opinions from facts and will continue to do so, particularly as relates to our sponsors."

Buyers Meeting Point welcomes inquiries from interested sponsors and partners interested in expanding their global visibility by becoming a sponsor for only $250 annually. "We display the logos of all our sponsors on our site to encourage patronage from our diverse group of followers," said co-owner Kelly Barner. "We take pride in our association with organizations serving the procurement community and take every opportunity to maximize the impact of the news and events that affect our audience."
