The Fife Economy Partnership is keen to ensure that Fife Business Week offers a comprehensive range of digital events that will allow new and established businesses to access the wide range of public and private sector support agencies, business experts and entrepreneurs. All new and established businesses are welcome to participate in the week of events that aim to inspire them to move their businesses forward with confidence to flourish and meet the unprecedented demands in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fife Council's Virtual Meet the Buyer Event

As part of Fife Business Week, Fife Council has announced a virtual Meet the Buyer event on Thursday, 5 November 2020.

Fife Council Economic Development, in partnership with the Supplier Development Programme, will host a virtual Meet the Buyer event as part of Fife Business Week 2020. Buyers expected to participate include Fife Council Procurement, Talgo, Forth and Tay Offshore Developers, SSE Renewables, EDF Renewables and Red Rock Power Limited.

This year's Meet the Buyer event aims to help local businesses find out what contract opportunities are available across a range of sectors, including offshore wind, renewables, manufacturing, construction, and the wider public sector. Participants will explore how to do business with Fife Council and other public sector buyers and gain an operational understanding of how to become part of the supply chain in these sectors. Businesses will also learn about top tendering tips and gain insight into the support that is available to become "tender ready" for these future opportunities through the Supplier Development Programme.

All suppliers are welcome, but there will likely be a focus on offshore wind and construction on the day. Business must register for free in advance on the SDP website. Suppliers can also join the conversation on social media by using the #FifeMeansBusiness and #InvestFife hashtags.
