Meet The Buyer Event Sept 12
On Wednesday 12 September, 2018, East London Business Place (ELBP) hosted a Meet the Buyer event in Canary Wharf, which brought Canary Wharf Contractors Ltd (CWCL) together with their tier one trade contractors and a cohort of SME sub-contractors and suppliers from ELBP’s ‘Building Legacies’ business support and growth programme.
Canary Wharf Group’s Director of ELBP Glen Addis said:
We are extremely pleased that we managed to get over 110 key players from numerous trades and tiers of the east London construction supply-chain in the same room talking in a very open and informal environment.
It was even more pleasing to see those SMEs in the more intermediate tiers get an understanding not only of the potential opportunities arising from the Wood Wharf, Bank Street and Newfoundland developments, but also what is really required to be fit-to-supply and to be able to bid for those opportunities.
This was the first in a series of trade-specific events we will be putting on with CWCL, and we look forward to welcoming more of east London’s talent-pool of SME sub-contractors and suppliers as each site moves through the next phases of development.
