Constructionline will be hosting its first 2017 Meet the Buyer event of the year in Leeds next Month.

A whole host of contractors and clients will be showcasing opportunities for suppliers across the city at the event on March 2.

Local developer Elliot Group will be present highlighting their increasing portfolio of schemes across the region.

Also in attendance will be City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Sheffield City Council, Simpsons (York) Ltd, InCommunities, Sanctuary Housing,Mears, Swiftclean (UK) Ltd, PHS Compliance and Fortem – formerly Willmott Dixon Partnerships.

Neil Thompson, Marketing Director at Constructionline, said: “The Leeds Meet the Buyer event has a real range of buyers.

“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.

“We’re looking forward to our first Meet the Buyer event in Leeds and want to maximize our time speaking to local SMEs and future working partners.”

Among the speakers will be Jenny Lawson, Manager of the Enterprise Europe Network team at Bradford Council, who will be sharing her top 10 hints and tips when bidding for contracts.

Lawson will also share her dos and don’ts when submitting tenders to contractors as part of series of talks on the day.
