Maximise the results of your visit to the South Hampshire Meet the Buyers 2012
Not only are you given the opportunity to meet with large Public and Private sector procurers and network with over 150 attendees, you will also have a chance to attend a FREE of charge pre-event to pick up tips on how to best sell your products and services to major buyers. Through our Meet the Buyers Event we are able to further enhance your visit by getting you direct access to the people you wish to do business with.
Meet and access leading procurement contacts across South Hampshire
Over 20 major procurement teams have committed to participating in the South Hampshire Meet the Buyers Event on the 29 March for one reason alone – to meet potential suppliers.

The structure for the day is simple:
• You register to attend the event and specify the products and/or services you offer and the type of buyer you would be interested in meeting. We will then use our ‘match-making’ service in order to maximise the opportunity to do business for those attending.

• One week before the event you will be sent an appointment diary stating which Buyers you will be meeting and at what time. We will endeavour to schedule you as many appointments as possible but on average you can expect between 4 – 7.

• At the event Buyers will be seated in Buyer’s booths. At your allocated time please make your way over to the appropriate booth where you will have a 10 minute appointment. You will be surprised how even 10 minutes can be enough time to get that vital first introduction, stimulate interest in your product and/or service and agree a course of action.

The meetings run from 9:30 – 4:30. The cost to attend is £95 plus VAT per delegate if you are located within the Partnership area and £395 plus VAT if you are situated outside of this area.
