A 'Meet the Buyer' event is taking place in Manchester tomorrow (January 24th), when local construction firms will get the chance to meet buyers from major organisations.
The event is being arranged by Constructionline and will give SMEs the chance to meet representatives from Walter Carefoot & Sons (Construction) Ltd, Constructing the Future Lancashire, Conlon, Regenda, Oldham Council, Procurement for All, Places for People and HVCA.
It is hoped that the event will open up opportunities for local SMEs to which they might not otherwise have got access.
Michael Waddington, client relationship manager from Constructionline, told Construction Enquirer: "This event is designed to give local construction companies some valuable introductions as well as helping them to learn about upcoming work opportunities, and how best to win business from the buyers."
The event is being hosted in the east of the city at the home of Manchester City FC - the Etihad Stadium - from 9am-3.30pm.
