The new site - www.meetthebuyersstansted.co.uk - gives local companies the opportunity to enrol for the highly successful networking event – Stansted Meet the Buyers - taking place at Down Hall Hotel on Tuesday, 24th February 2009.
"Meet the Buyers 2008 was a resounding success and we received extremely positive feedback from a wide range of businesses that attended. It was estimated that sales of nearly £2.5 million were achieved in the 12 months following last year’s event.
"The launch of this website will help companies enrol for the 2009 event, which promises to be bigger and better than ever. At a time when many people are concerned about the economy, Meet the Buyer’s gives companies the chance to generate new business opportunities," said Ashley Riley, BAA Stansted’s head of communications and public affairs.
Organised by the airport and the Essex Chambers of Commerce, Meet the Buyers creates a platform for businesses in the region to meet and discuss potential new sales opportunities with companies based at, or in close proximity to, Stansted.
Denise Rossiter, Operations Director for the Essex Chambers of Commerce, said:
"Stansted Meet the Buyers is a fantastic opportunity for companies in the region. This is one of the largest procurement events in the South East and is a direct route for suppliers to communicate with regional and international buyers."
