EMCC: Heathrow Business Summit – Supply Chain Opportunity

23 November, 2017, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Heathrow Business Summit

East Midlands Chamber is hosting a FREE Heathrow Business Summit in partnership with Heathrow.  This year Heathrow is hosting six new Regional Business Summits across the UK.  These are in addition to their flagship event in November, in order to appeal to more small British firms.  And give them an insight into Heathrow’s major suppliers to help them win new contracts in the future.

Business summits

The Heathrow Business Summits are a unique opportunity for SMEs to connect and trade face to face with Heathrow’s supply chain.  And connect to growth opportunities locally, nationally and internationally. Heathrow is committed to using its position as a national asset for the benefit of SMEs.  As the UK’s hub airport, Heathrow connects businesses up and down the UK to crucial growth markets around the world.

The airport spends over £1.5bn annually with more than 1,200 suppliers from around the UK.  Of course, with their projected expansion, there will be even more work on the horizon.  Construction of the runway will be the UK’s largest infrastructure project and small and medium-sized businesses will be critical to delivering the £16bn investment.

The Heathrow Business Summit on 23 November will give Midlands’ SME businesses the chance to have free 15 minute face-to-face appointments with Heathrow’s supply chain.  This one day event takes place at Risley Hall, Derbyshire from 10am–4pm.  Furthermore, this event includes a finger buffet lunch and refreshments for all guests.

Why attend?

  • The Heathrow Business Summits each provide a great platform for SMEs to get a foot in the door and capitalise on the business opportunities available at Heathrow
  • Promote your business to Heathrow’s supply chain through face-to-face appointments on the day
  • Meet and network with exhibitor partners including the Local Councils and Chambers of Commerce
  • All exhibitors actively support and guide businesses on how to connect and build trade relations into new supply chains at Heathrow

Further information and registration

A number of Heathrow’s supply chain companies have already confirmed their attendance and are available for face-to-face appointments.  Find out who’s coming.  Here you will also be able to find out more on each of these suppliers. 

Since this is a free event, interest is bound to be strong.  So don’t delay, register today by completing this booking form and returning it to events@emc-dnl.co.uk.

By registering your interest in this event, it does not mean you will automatically receive an appointment with one or all of the suppliers.  Once the final list of suppliers is available we will contact you by email, to obtain your preference(s).  Please note that there will be limited availability of the 1-1 appointments.  Therefore these will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and a maximum of two delegates per company can attend.
