Gatwick Diamond Meet the Buyer 2018
27 November 2018
More than one hundred local businesses were given a boost this week when they attended the Gatwick Diamond Meet the Buyer 2018 event.
Each one had the opportunity to showcase their products and services at up to six meetings with buyers from larger companies and advisory organisations who were seeking local suppliers.
The event, sponsored by the Gatwick Diamond Initiative, Gatwick Airport and Crawley Borough Council, was held at the Arora Hotel. Taking advantage of the latest software, the organisers matched each business with compatible buyers, ensuring the meetings were beneficial for both buyers and sellers.
Kathy Taylor from Sodexo Prestige was there to promote her company’s services. She said: “I felt that the buyers were incredibly engaging and supportive, providing high value in a short period of time. The day was hugely valuable as I identified potential business opportunities with all six of the buyers I met.”
Rosemary French OBE, Executive Director of the Gatwick Diamond Initiative said: “In these uncertain times, it is good to see many small businesses are striding forward with their growth ambitions by attending this event. The Gatwick Diamond Initiative seeks to grow the local supply chain in Sussex and by sponsoring this event, as we have for many years, we can make a difference by connecting SMEs with potential new customers.”
