Meet the buyer event organised to highlight upcoming contracts and opportunities Anglesey County Council and the National Eisteddfod have to offer.
Anglesey Council has teamed up with Business Wales to highlight the many tendering opportunities that are available to local businesses, and officials from the National Eisteddfod will also be in attendance to outline what goods and services are required as well as the catering opportunities for next year’s event at Bodedern.
The County Council has organised a special Meet the Buyer event at Canolfan Ebeneser, Llangefni on the 23rd November. The event is aimed at helping local contractors and businesses gain a better understanding of local government procurement processes and view the tendering opportunities that will be available from the authority in 2017; these tender opportunities include the new Corporate Repairs and Maintenance Framework which will be advertised in 2017.
It will also provide an opportunity to promote the range of products and services available locally and to network with representatives from the Council, Business Wales and the National Eisteddfod.
Anglesey’s Corporate Procurement Manager, Sioned Rowlands said, “This is a great opportunity for local businesses and will give an insight into the various contracts that will become available in 2017, as well as what will be available from the National Eisteddfod.”
“It will also give businesses the chance to learn more about how local government purchases its products and services, how they can be better prepared to bid for contracts advertised by Anglesey Council, and an insight into the Sell2Wales website, where various contracts are advertised.”
The National Eisteddfod is an annual eight day festival which travels across Wales. The event attracts around 150,000 visitors and over 200 trade stands and stalls, bringing an estimated £6-£8 million to the host area according to independent research.
Eisteddfod Head of Community Delivery, Alwyn Roberts added, “The aim of the event is to give local businesses an opportunity to find out more about our needs and for us to see what goods and services are available locally - such events are extremely useful to engage with the local business sector.”
“The Eisteddfod as a festival requires wide range of goods and services and we are always keen to hear from local companies who can offer quality and reliable services at competitive prices.”
“We are very grateful to Anglesey County Council and Business Wales for their assistance and support in organising this event and hope that many businesses from the local area will want to find out more about our requirements.”
We look forward to hearing from you!
