About The Event

Public sector organisations can make good customers. They have to employ tendering processes that are transparent, provide essential  information to potential suppliers and ensure a fair chance for small businesses. They also have to be fair and honest in the way they choose suppliers and pay promptly within agreed contract terms.

***Please note that this is an event that forms part of the Launchpad Programme. This event is open to any business that is prestart or under two years of trading. If your company has been trading for  over two years, then you may still be able to attend, but please call 01226 773003 to check first.***
