More than 650 representatives from SMEs across Northern Ireland and Ireland attended the largest ever InterTradeIreland ‘Meet the Buyer’ event held across the island to date in the Ramada, Belfast.

Pictured at ‘Meet the Buyer’ is Paul Glynn from ESB with Martin Farrell and Michael Hasson from Newry business, Murdock Building Merchants.

The landmark public procurement event provided local businesses with the opportunity to meet directly with around 50 public sector buyers from a diverse range of sectors, including representatives from Translink, Irish Rail, NIE, RTÉ, An Garda Síochána, NI Housing Executive and various councils and government departments. The highly popular event is designed to provide SMEs with an insight into and an improved understanding of the tendering process and how they can gain access to the all-island public procurement market, which is worth an estimated £10billion. As well as engaging directly with key buyers, specialists were also on hand to give workshops and masterclasses to SMEs on related topics such as ‘refining your pitch’, ‘consortia building’ and ‘lessons in tendering’.
