Meet the Buyers 2017

Meet the Buyers 2017

Manor Royal BID is supporting the Gatwick Diamond Meet the Buyers this year, bringing local, regional and national buyers together with local businesses in the region.  The event is also sponsored by Gatwick Airport, The Gatwick Diamond Initiative and Crawley Borough Council.

Now in its 17th year, Gatwick Diamond Meet the Buyers creates new business for those that take part.   Over £22.5m of business is estimated to have been created since 2010 and in 2017, there will be more than 2,000 sales meetings at the Meet the Buyers event in October.

In previous years, Meet the Buyers has focused on Construction and Infrastructure. These sectors are still important and will be represented in 2017, but the organisers are looking to create more opportunities in other sectors.  So far, buyers have said they are looking to secure a very wide range of services from Advertising to Waste Management, from Brickwork to Welding.
