There will also be a an opportunity for businesses to increase sales and win new contracts through pre-arranged face-to-face meetings with buyers at a meet the buyer style event held in the afternoon.

David Townlsey, Executive Director of NDI said: “We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our annual conference in Bristol from both delegates and speakers who found it was an unparalleled opportunity to openly discuss the issues affecting supply chains and explore new opportunities to supply and increase sales.

“As a great deal of our members are based in the North of England and Scotland we wanted to provide these businesses with the same great opportunity to come together, discuss, learn and access new opportunities to supply projects in Scotland, the UK and Internationally.

“The conference is being held in a fantastic venue and we have a number of major prime contractors presenting and discussing opportunities for SMEs to engage. It will be invaluable day for Scottish businesses seeking new opportunities and for businesses from outside the region that are looking to access Scottish, UK and International market opportunities.”
