The Meet the Buyer event will take place on Wednesday, 16 May 2012, at the Banqueting Suite of the Briar Court Hotel, Halifax Road, Huddersfield, HD3 3NT, starting at 6 p.m., but doors open at 5-30p.m. Free refreshments will be provided. Unlike other events, the evening will only be open to manufacturing members who have registered before the event – This is an excellent opportunity for you to develop new customers
The purpose of this “Meet the Buyer” events is to introduce CKMA manufacturers to larger CKMA member companies in order that they may subsequently sell their products to them. As a result of the last such event in December, one supplier succeeded in taking an order which should lead to annual sales of over £60,000. We aim to have 10 companies seeking additional local suppliers at the event. Those who have confirmed so far are:
David Brown Gears, Borg Warner, Halifax Fan, Disposables UK Group, Leo Group and Heights (UK) Ltd.
The format of the event is a form of “speed dating” to match buyer and supplier with a view to future business, there will also be opportunities to hold discussions with other suppliers without appointments.
The number of potential suppliers will be limited so that everyone has a fair chance to meet the buyers so register now as a potential supplier by emailing here with the following details: 1. Your company name, who you wish to attend (up to 2 people), email address and web address. 2. Your main line of business products, services and production capacity. 3. The type of product you can manufacture or type of work you can undertake. We will confirm that your place has been booked soon after receipt of your application. This event is not being managed or run by Ocurem, it is being organised by CKMA assisted by Calderdale and Kirklees Councils
