Together with headline partners, Scottish Borders Council, the Supplier Development Programme has announced the third Meet the Buyer South event will take place on 29 October in Galashiels. Suppliers will be able to meet procurement teams from local authorities in the South of Scotland, alongside other public and private sector buying organisations, and can also find out how to become 'tender ready' for bid writing for these many opportunities through free training from the Supplier Development Programme.

Meet the Buyer South aims to help local businesses find out what contract opportunities are available both within the three councils, local supply chains, and further afield across a range of sectors. Participants will explore how to do business with public sector buyers and gain an operational understanding of how to become part of local supply chains, as well as how to get involved in Community Wealth Building opportunities.

No business is too small to attend Meet the Buyer South! The event is aimed at sole traders, micro, small and medium sized businesses, supported businesses and third sector organisations, but it is open to businesses of all sizes.

Further details, including venue and agenda, for this in-person event will be announced in due course.

All suppliers, including non-SMEs, are eligible to attend and must register an account with SDP to book a place.
