RCT Council invites Local companies to a FREE ‘Meet the Buyer’ event in Rhondda Cynon Taf this week, giving them the opportunity to network with other businesses and organisations.
The event will be held at Llantrisant Leisure Centre on Thursday, February 7. Doors will be open from 10am until 4pm and no appointment is necessary.
Local businesses are invited along to meet with some of the region’s large organisations to discuss the business opportunities they have available.
This is the perfect network opportunity, with big spenders in both the public and private sectors in attendance.
Visitors will be able to find out how they can become part of the supply chain, either through providing their goods and/or services or becoming sub-contractors to other companies.
Councillor Mark Norris, Cabinet Member for Corporate Services, said: “Our Meet the Buyer events are always a great success and well-attended by the business community.
“The Council is proud of its award-winning approach to procuring its goods and services with events such as this supporting all the excellent work that is carried out across our County Borough.
“From food served in our schools or care homes to multi-million-pound new education buildings or the many highways schemes, all of these are done through the Council’s effective and robust procurement service.
“This ensures the Council and the Council Taxpayer get value for money with the best possible goods and services at the right price.
“Our Meet the Buyer event is the perfect place to speak with like-minded people while at the same time gathering information, from how to start your own business; help to run it successfully; advice on how to expand and develop your workforce, information on funding opportunities and finding out how to apply for contracts.
“Of the Council’s current corporate contracts, 98.9 per cent are currently with companies in the South Wales region, so don’t miss your opportunity to be one of them.”
There will also be advice and information available about introducing work placements and apprenticeships into your business and the help available.
