The Supplier Development Programme has announced the draft agenda for the Forth Valley Meet the Buyer event to be held virtually on 30 June. The virtual portal and exhibitions will be open to all registered suppliers from 9:30am - 2:30pm on 30 June.

If you miss a presentation, many of the presentations listed in this agenda will be available within the virtual portal as "on-demand" videos, with the exception of "live Q&A" sessions as denoted. The final films will be available on the SDP YouTube Channel following the conclusion of the event, so be sure to 'subscribe'!
