What's happening?

This free to visit event gives you access to buyers and decision makers, from organisations across the public and private sectors. You'll have the chance to introduce your company, talk to key buyer contacts, and discover opportunities in their pipelines.

Whether you are a micro, small or medium sized supplier, Meet the Buyer can help you get into public sector supply chains.  You will meet buyers connected to public sector projects, who are looking for suppliers that enrich local economies and support Community Wealth Building.

What are the Benefits of Attendance?

  • Opportunities to network with procurement teams and buyers from across the public and private sectors.
  • A chance to pitch your business innovations to buyers.
  • Hearing speakers discuss their experiences, pipeline projects and upcoming contract opportunities.
  • Explanation of procurement jargon and buzzwords.
  • Top tips on how to bid via Public Contracts Scotland and PCS-Tender from SDP's expert trainers.

Who should attend Meet the Buyer 2024?

Meet the Buyer 2023 is aimed towards micro, small and medium sized businesses from across Scotland. However, all are welcome! Wherever you are based, and however big your business is, there is something useful to be found at this National Meet the Buyer!

Not sure if your business’ products and services have a place in public and private sector procurement? You may be able to provide peripheral products and services nearby - for example, MOTs, food and drink, cleaning services, security services, local B&Bs, grounds maintenance. 

You can't afford to miss out on the chance to hear about upcoming projects and contracts.

You'll only know if you go...

Attendance is key. If you don’t sign up for this free event in advance, you will miss out on the opportunity to introduce your business to Scottish local authorities, framework providers, and big contractors.

If your business can attend just one event this year, make it Meet the Buyer 2024!

All suppliers are eligible to attend for free. However, you must register an account with SDP to book a place.
