Invest in Middlesbrough is hosting a ‘How to do Business with Middlesbrough Council’ event in partnership with the authority’s procurement team this month.
The event at Middlesbrough Town Hall, on Thursday, January 17, from 9.30am to noon, will feature a short presentation highlighting the best way to engage with Middlesbrough Council’s procurement team.
Attendees will hear details of upcoming contracts, and the presentation will be followed by an informal market-style networking session.
The North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) will be on hand to help businesses understand how to access the NE procurement portal, and the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and North East of England Chamber of Commerce (NEECC) will attend to offer support and guidance.
Representatives from TeesAMP (Tees Advanced Manufacturing Park), Middlesbrough Council’s Housing Growth and Civic Centre office development project teams will also be available to discuss the latest supply chain opportunities.
Councillor Lewis Young, Middlesbrough Council’s executive member for economic development and infrastructure, said: “A vibrant city centre economy relies on a buoyant business sector, and one of our key roles is to act as a catalyst for local enterprise and jobs.
“This event is fantastic opportunity for local businesses to engage in one-to-one discussions with support agencies, Middlesbrough Council procurement officers and project managers to understand how to get involved with the supply chain.
“It’s also a great networking opportunity, so I hope as many businesses as possible will come along, and make the most of the opportunities that are opening up across Middlesbrough.”
