Newry, Mourne and Down District Council is calling on local businesses to register for a unique opportunity to showcase their offering to some of Northern Ireland’s largest procurement specialists.
The NMD Tender for Growth Meet the Buyer event, which takes place at the Slieve Donard Hotel in Newcastle on Thursday 22nd September, will bring SMEs from the district which have less than 50 employees and are seeking to win new business through procurement together, to hear and learn from those involved in tendering. Buyers who will be represented include Kingspan, Re-Gen Waste, Translink, the Education Authority, BWL Group and Newry, Mourne and Down District Council.
The event is being delivered as part of the NMD Tender for Growth programme, which is part funded by Invest Northern Ireland and the European Regional Development Fund under the Investment for Growth & Jobs Northern Ireland (2014 -2020) programme.
At the launch of the event, Councillor Michael Savage, Chair of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council encouraged local businesses to get involved. He said: “Newry, Mourne and Down is brimming with a host of first-class service providers and suppliers. They each have the products and the skills to support larger organisations and their needs, but it is crucial that they are in front of the right people if they are to win new business. That’s where this event comes in – providing those essential introductions and giving small businesses a platform to showcase what they can do.
“If you are a SME and have a real passion for growing your business, particularly through tendering and procurement, then you will not want to miss this event. As well as meeting those involved in procurement processes, you will also equip yourself with new skills to help make your tendering efforts a success. This is a huge opportunity, exclusively for businesses in Newry, Mourne and Down, which is completely free and could transform your business.”
The NMD Tender for Growth Meet the Buyer event takes place at the Slieve Donard Hotel in Newcastle on Thursday 22nd September and starts at 9:30am. While places are free, they are limited so businesses are encouraged to register early.
