Event description

Description

THE EVENT:

In previous years we have called this event 'Meet the Buyer'. We are now crowning this event as 'Business Opportunity Day'. Why? Because as we build and grow our community ecosystem by welcoming so many new industry and community partners, there are business opportunities everywhere.

If you are an ethnic minority business, this restructured event will not only give you the chance to meet many buyers from our corporate network but would also provide you an opportunity to meet with our partners. These include Universities, Catapult centres and Industry networks amongst others, who all have buying power and are looking for new suppliers to offer them product and services. And with over 400 businesses in our network with a collective turnover of over £700m, there are business opportunities all around!

This is one of our flagship events, bringing our entire corporate, partner and business network together. Part of the MSDUK Procurement Hub, it provides a unique opportunity for everyone to meet, connect and build business relationships and identify future business opportunities.

WHAT IS HAPPENING ON THE DAY?

  • Pre-arranged 1-2-1 meetings between buyers and suppliers
  • Throughout the day, we have a separate room for networking with activities, ice-breakers arranged to ensure every participant gets to know as many people as they can.
  • B2B lounge for instant meetings on the day with potential buyers, sourcing people and other suppliers.
  • Business talks and procurement workshops will be held during the day delivered by procurement professionals and entrepreneurs sharing stories and case study examples of winning corporate business.
  • The MSDUK team will be on hand throughout the day, sharing with you information on different programmes and activities and making personalised introductions, if you need one.

  • MSDUK Certified Ethnic Minority Businesses
  • Those that applied for the 2018/19 MSDUK Innovation Challenge

TIPS FOR THE EVENT:

  • Businesses: Before the event you will be provided a list of the 1-2-1 meetings that you will be having on the day. We suggest you do some research on the company/'s you are meeting with and their current procurement practice for your product/service. You can also bring some aids to support the meetings but keep these concise as the main purpose is for you to build a rapport with the buyer.
  • Corporate Buyers: Before the event you will have the opportunity to select the businesses you woud like to meet, we suggest you come prepared with dates of when specific tender opportunities will occur relevant to the businesses you meet so you can explain to them when there may be a potenail opportunity. It is alway good practice to be transparent and not raise expectations if there are not relevant opportunities.
