Somerset Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Heathrow Airport are proud to be hosting the South West Heathrow Business Summit.
Delivering Heathrow expansion is a major infrastructure project that will rely on talent from across the country. SME's already play a crucial role in Heathrow's supply chain with the airport spending over £1.5 billion annually with more than 1,200 SMEs and suppliers from across the country and in the local communities surrounding the airport.
To ensure that UK businesses can maximise the opportunities of expansion, Heathrow is delivering a series of Business Summits throughout the UK allowing businesses to network and trade with each other, meet the airport's supply chain and organise meetings with the Department for International Trade to explore exporting opportunities. In 2017, Heathrow held seven Summits across the UK, and to date an estimated £93.4 million of new deals have been won by businesses as a result of the partnerships formed at Business Summits. In 2018, they are holding 10 Business Summits around the UK to ensure every region benefits from supply chain opportunities from expansion.
What are the benefits of attending?
This is a great platform for SME's to get a foot in the door and capitalise on the business opportunities available at Heathrow. Promote your services to businesses within Heathrow's Supply Chain who are committed to procure from SME's. Meet and network with exhibitor partners including the Heathrow Procurement Team, Somerset Chamber of Commerce, Local Enterprise Partnerships, Bridgwater & Taunton College and The Department for International Trade.
