Posted on Thursday, October 26, 2017, at 1:56 PM
The 3rd British-Irish Airports EXPO is exhibiting at two key London-area airport buyer events in November: The “London Stansted Meet the Buyers” event on 1 November, and the “Heathrow Business Summit” on 8 November – the largest, and last, in Heathrow’s series of seven summits held all over the UK in 2017.
Stansted: Meet over 30 buyers
The Stansted Meet the Buyers event, at the Radisson Blu London Stansted, enables suppliers to meet registered buyers ranging from the main sponsor, Balfour Beatty, to over 30 other buyers including several who are also present at the June 2018 British-Irish Airports EXPO including: Amalga, Beumer Group, British Aviation Group, MACE and Vanderlande.
The London Stansted Meet the Buyers programme connects supplier companies with buyers for pre-arranged 10-minute appointments, plus two “speed-networking sessions.” Prices for SMEs start at £125+ VAT (including lunch).
Heathrow Business Summit offers 66 buyers
The fully-booked Heathrow Business Summit at the Hilton Terminal 5 on November 8, will have 66 buyers and is described by Heathrow as the “flagship event” which comes after the six Regional Business Summits which have been held across the UK throughout 2017. The Business Summits deliberately appeal to SMEs by “giving an insight into Heathrow’s major suppliers while opening the door of opportunity to win new contracts in the future.”
Buyers present at the Heathrow Business Summit who are also present at the June 2018 Heathrow-hosted British-Irish Airports EXPO include Vanderlande, Omniserv, Beumer Group, Amalga, Wilson James, and MACE.
The Heathrow Business Summit provides 15-minute face-to-face appointments between suppliers and buyers and costs £50 per business for one delegate, plus £30 per additional delegate. All places were fully booked at the time of wriitng. An estimated £100 million of new deals have been won by businesses, as a result of partnerships formed at the Business Summits.
