Meet the buyer event

SUPPLIERS and businesses are invited to meet Dumfries and Galloway Council’s procurement team next week.

They are holding a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event in Dumfries to provide local providers and contractors with an opportunity to meet the teams, discuss what services are needed, and promote their own businesses.

There will be exhibitions from local organisations including, Loreburn Housing Association, DGHP/Wheatley Group, NHS Dumfries, and Galloway. Representatives will also be in attendance from SDP, Scotland Excel, Business Gateway and the South of Scotland Enterprise.

It’s a chance for businesses to meet, network and find out more about the different contracting opportunities.

Cllr Carolyne Wilson said: “This will be a very worthwhile event and I would encourage local suppliers to come along and meet our council teams. I think it’s often easier to do business with someone if you have already made contact with them and met them face-to-face. This is also an opportunity to find out about exactly which services our council requires.”

It takes place at The Bridge, Dumfries on Wednesday 10 am-2 pm. Register at
