Join us for the 14th Annual Meet the Buyer 2023!

Face-to-face events are back! Meet the Buyer 2023 is talking place as a fully in-person event at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on 13 May 2023.

Meet with Buyers from Scotland’s local authorities, government agencies and contractors to hear about upcoming work in Scotland's public sector, worth £13.3bn annually, as well as opportunities right across the UK's public sector!

This event gives suppliers unprecedented access to buyers and decision makers from across the public and private sectors. You'll have the chance to introduce your company, talk to the key contacts and find out about what tenders and projects buyers have in the pipeline for local businesses for the supply of materials, goods, and services.

In addition, you can meet with trade and construction contractors that are connected to public sector projects to find out about opportunities in the supply chain and related to 'project delivery on site' - so even if you don't think you work in a particular sector but your business can provide key services nearby like MOTs, baked goods, cleaning services, for example - you can't afford to miss out on the chance to talk about local Community Wealth Building opportunities. This event is a golden opportunity for SMEs, social enterprises and third sector organisations to get "tender ready" too!

Attendance is key. If you don’t sign up, you are missing a fantastic opportunity to ensure that your business is known to your local council and its big contractors.

Meet the Buyer 2023 is aimed at all micro, small and medium size organisations from across Scotland. Wherever you are based, and however big your business is, there is something useful to be found at this national Meet the Buyer event.

If your business can attend just one event this year, make it Meet the Buyer 2023! Book your free place now!
