Costain, in conjunction with Business Wales, is hosting a free event in Newport on 3 December to help prospective supply chain participants to gain a foothold on future projects in Wales.
Backed by the Welsh government, the event is called Engagement and Opportunities with Costain. There will be an opportunity to hear about the Welsh government’s infrastructure plans and meet Costain project teams.
“There is a wealth of talent and expertise within the SME sector and this event gives potential contractors an opportunity to demonstrate their capabilities and grab the attention of the project teams delivering these influential schemes on behalf of the Welsh government,” said Costain assistant supply chain manager Sarah Thomas, who is organising the event.
“Companies will be able to put a face to a project they have perhaps heard about on the grapevine. It will be an introduction to the team who is delivering the project, rather than just buyers, and they will also have the opportunity to build relationships within Costain across various sectors,” she added.
“We will also provide them with tools to push their business forward, whether it is through one of our tender or technology workshops, or through our Supply Chain Academy, or through sharing our own initiatives with them.”
Also on hand will be the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), Sell2Wales, the Carbon Trust and Achilles, the procurement and supply chain management service organisation.
The event is due to take place from 9am on December 3rd at The Lodge, Celtic Manor Resort, Newport. For more information, see: http://business.wales.gov.uk/business-wales-events?eventid=CMP-21345-L80TVV
