Meet the Buyer event has expanded for 2018, this year also including buyers from neighbouring Tameside as well as Stockport, Trafford and Rochdale.
Organisations taking part in Meet the Buyer 2018 will include STAR Procurement, the shared procurement service for Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford Councils, Rochdale Boroughwide Housing, Stockport Homes, Totally Local Company, Hopwood Hall College, UA92 and Crescent Purchasing Consortium.
Meet the Buyer 2018 will be taking place at Rochdale Town Hall on Thursday 22nd November. Businesses need to make sure they pre-book their appointments so that they don’t miss out.
Bringing together buyers from some of the largest public sector organisations from across Rochdale, Stockport, Trafford and Tameside, the event gives companies the opportunity to promote their goods and services to buyers who are actively looking to fill specific contracts, making the event a must for anyone who is looking to grow their business.
By matching the goods and services businesses offer, with the current buying requirements of purchasing teams, through tailored appointments, Meet the Buyer helps makes the ‘pitching’ process more efficient for companies.
To get involved and express an interest in Meet the Buyer, businesses need to complete and submit a booking form by 5pm on Thursday 18th October.
Councillor Kate Butler, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration, said:
“Meet the Buyer is an excellent opportunity for local small and medium sized businesses to speak directly with organisations who are actively looking to buy their products or services.
“Over the years it has proven highly successful in connecting companies with organisations looking to fill contracts, helping them secure new business and grow their company for the future. I’d encourage Stockport companies to have a look at the opportunities available and apply for a place at Meet the Buyer 2018.”
