InterTradeIreland's Meet the Buyer Belfast event was held on 8th June in the Ramada Plaza Hotel, Belfast. The event was a resounding success with over 120 public sector buyers and over 500 suppliers across the island of Ireland in attendance.
The event showcased sessions from key organisations ie: Office of Government Procurement (OGP), Central Procurement Directorate (CPD), and Health Service Executive (HSE). You can download the presentations here:

The Meet the Buyer events provide SMEs with an overview of the all-island public procurement market and the opportunities available.
Throughout each event programme, there are a number of opportunities to meet with public sector buyers from across the island at the 'Buyer Stands'. There are also representatives from the key business agencies across the island who can advise you on current funding opportunities and business supports available.
Parallel session workshops are held throughout the event showcasing the procurement market process as well as trends, tips and techniques to take away.
We will be holding more Meet the Buyer events later in 2016. Sign up to our InterTradeIreland email newsletter to keep up to date with news about our Meet the Buyer events as well as our other Tendering Supports.
