InterTradeIreland Meet the Buyer Events
InterTradeIreland with its partner organisations held a series of three Meet the Buyer events in 2012 in Athlone, Cookstown and kilkenny. The Upping your Game Meet the Buyer events provided SMEs with an overview of the all-island public procurement market and the opportunities available.
Throughout each of these events, SMEs got the opportunity to meet with public sector buyers from across the island North and South at the Buyer stands. There were also representatives from the key business agencies across the island who advised delegates on the current funding opportunities and business supports available.
Parallel session workshops conducted separately also showcased the procurement market process as well as trends, tips and techniques to take away.
There are no further events planned for 2012 but presentations from the 3 events are available to download from our prcourement hints and tips section.
