The ‘meet the buyer’ event has been organised by Constructionline, the government-owned database of contractors. It will take place at Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club on 16th October 2014, from 8:30am until 3pm.
The event is sponsored by main contractor Bouygues UK and 23 other organisations are already signed up, including Vinci Construction, University of Brighton and South Essex Procurement Hub.
Constructionline client relationship manager Victoria Chamlet said: “Firms are increasingly keen to engage with smaller suppliers and this is becoming a requirement on winning public sector work. In addition, SME contractors are often well-placed to deliver work programmes on their doorsteps. However, for both groups, getting access to each other has traditionally not been an easy task.
“Events like these are hugely valuable, giving both parties a platform to talk about upcoming opportunities and how they can best work together.”
