Stockport Council’s Meet the Buyer is returning in 2017 on Tuesday 20th June. This year the event has been expanded to include purchasing teams and suppliers from Stockport, Trafford and Rochdale.  The popular event gives suppliers from the three boroughs the opportunity to promote their goods and services to buyers acting on behalf of some of Stockport, Trafford and Rochdale’s largest public sector organisations, through a series of tailored appointments.
Meet the Buyer events are an excellent opportunity for local small and medium sized businesses to get past the gatekeeper and talk to those in a position to buy their products or services. 
The event matches the goods and services offered by businesses with the current buying requirements of participating purchasing teams, to ensure supplier businesses meet with companies actively seeking the service they offer, making the ‘pitching’ process more efficient. This year there are 7 purchasing teams participating.
Businesses can request a 10 minute appointment but all appointments will need to be pre-booked and the deadline for returning booking forms is Monday 15th May 2017 (5pm)
