Supplier Engagement

Know-How to Tender Successfully

Supplier Engagement

Following the success of our Meet the Buyer events, InterTradeIreland is now holding a series of sectoral supplier engagement events. These events will provide SMEs supplying to the public sector, the opportunity to meet with relevant buyers and organisations within a particular sector. 

By undertaking these events on a sectoral basis, we can focus on the specific needs of a sector and how the supply base (SMEs) can most effectively offer valuable solutions. Initially we will concentrate on Local Government, Health & Construction; areas where we have critical advantage and established relationships with Contracting Authorities.

These events will help to foster a deeper understanding and engagement between Contracting Authority Buyers & SME Suppliers.


A series of events will be taking place in 2017.  The first of these will be Local Government focused and will take place on 21st June in the Glenavon House Hotel, Cookstown and focuses on local Government procurement.
