“It’s a fantastic chance for local companies to create lasting relationships with well established brands and public sector authorities.
“This year we also have a series of fantastic speakers whose vast experience in dealing with contract pitches will provide a vital insight for any suppliers in attendance.”
Martin Stewart, Supply Chain Manager at Fortem said: “Being able to instantly check our supplier’s insurance, financial, health & safety, equality and environmental credentials is a huge benefit to us.
“We consider Corporate Social Responsibility to be a top priority and as we look to continue expansion into wider areas outside of social housing, it’s essential we’re supported by an expert in supply chain and procurement management. That’s why we’ve appointed Constructionline.
