‘Meet the Buyers’ event set to boost local economy
Press Release: 17/02/2010
As the country climbs out of recession, the South Hampshire Partnership has announced the fourth Meet the Buyers Event on the 24th March 2010 at East Horton Golf Club in Fair Oak, Hampshire
This initiative enables major buying organisations within South Hampshire to meet local suppliers face-to-face.
The event is designed to build local supply chains and is funded by the South Hampshire Meet the Buyers partnership which includes Eastleigh Borough Council, the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire, Hampshire County Council, New Forest District Council, Test Valley Borough Council, and Winchester City Council.
At last year’s event, over 150 suppliers and 25 buyers took part, with over 20% of companies winning business and a further 60% believing they were likely to win business as a result of the event.
Senior buyers from organisations such as Carillion, Hampshire County Council, BAA Southhampton, Lakehouse Contract, and New Forest District Council have already committed to take part. They will all be given a buying office at the event, allowing them each to meet up to 40 small and medium sized businesses on the day.
