Stimulating local procurement in Tameside
Meet the buyer: meet the seller event - 21 September 2010
'Meet the buyer: meet the seller' was an event designed by Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council to stimulate procurement within the borough, and to provide a better understanding of available products and suppliers in the area.
The event provided face-to-face timed appointments for local supply companies to ‘meet the buyers’. There were a number of business support organisations offering help, advice and support on a range of business related issues.
On the day, local businesses had a fantastic opportunity to network and build contacts, as well as raising their awareness about the goods and services that can be provided locally.
