Refer a supplier

We at BESA are always trying to ensure that we are as representative as possible of the UK education suppliers’ sector, and have ambitious plans to grow membership of the Association significantly over the next year.

We have developed a substantial market map of suppliers to this end, but nothing is more powerful than a warm introduction from a peer within the industry – such as yourself.

Do you know a company that really should be in BESA membership but isn’t currently? You can view the full list of current BESA members here.

If you could refer them to us – with a named contact – and wouldn’t mind us saying you suggested we get in touch, then we will happily give you a £50 gift voucher for an outlet of your choice, once they come into membership.

All you need to do is fill out this short referral form, and we will take it from there. If you would prefer an alternative approach, such as connecting a contact via email, that would also be fine. Please email Patrick with the details.

Any thoughts and suggestions you can offer would be warmly welcomed – we intend this to be an ongoing initiative, so even if no-one springs to mind now, don’t hesitate to get in touch if someone does further down the line. Multiple referrals are welcome.

Thank you in advance for any support you can offer in helping us to extend BESA’s representation of the industry!
