A Year in the Making
Giftpoint became our new supplier for many merchandise products a year ago and since then it became clear that we wanted to work much closer together to bring in a wider range of products and a more streamlined service.  This will all come together with the launch of our Giftpoint BIS eShop on the 1st of May 2018.  Giftpoint will operate the service on behalf of the BIS, but we will be working closely with them in partnership and overseeing every aspect of the development of products from initial conception through design to launch.  The Giftpoint BIS eShop will feature a much enhanced navigation system, member account management and faster checkout.

Giftpoint has a specialist sales and after sales team which will become the main point of contact for queries relating to merchandise (contact details on the Giftpoint BIS eShop).  Though the BIS staff will still be available should you wish to contact us direct.  Publications and membership will continue to be handled through the BIS Membership eShop on the BIS website.
