Meet the Buyer!

Providing a platform for the Made in the Midlands network to come together to engage with potential customers from across the region.

Gleeson’s “Meet the Buyer” event will offer you the opportunity to meet procurement contacts from small, medium and corporate organisations across the West Midlands, discuss the capabilities of your organisation and hopefully make real & tangible connections that could lead to real business opportunities in the future. A selection of Buyers & Purchasing Managers will be present from across the region, with expertise purchasing different categories, which means whether you manufacture metal pressings, offer power coating services or provide engineering consultancy, you’ll be able to meet someone responsible for buying those parts or services for their organisation, or with connections to make an introduction for you.  

We’ll receive a presentation and Q&A session from a Procurement Director from a leading Midlands-based manufacturing organisation, demonstrating an approach to partnership-based professional procurement and offering advice about how to “get to the table” with hard to reach clients.

Of course, drinks will be on offer in our conferencing centre!
