Opportunity to meet the major buyers

BUSINESSES are being given the chance to find out about new contract opportunities.

North Tyneside Business Forum’s ‘Meet the Buyer’ event will offer the borough’s firms a unique chance to get in front of some the region’s biggest buying organisations.

Buyers will include Balfour Beatty, the Ministry of Defence, Robertson Construction, Kier North Tyneside, the NHS, Gentoo Construction, TyneMet College and local authorities.

The event takes place on Tuesday between 2pm and 6pm at The Civic Hall, The Green, Wallsend.

The free session will help borough-based businesses by:

n Offering a chance to talk directly to buyers;

n Raising awareness of up and coming opportunities and where to find them;

n Assessing individual business needs and potential;

n Helping to make a company ‘tender ready’;

n Registering a company on appropriate tender portals;

n Providing the ultimate networking opportunity.

Businesses can attend at any time, to meet the buyers they want to do business with.

There will also be a chance for some individual one-to-one support to help businesses brush up their tendering skills.
