Braintree: Firms flock to airport business meeting
10:40am Friday 4th October 2013 in News
Companies from across the East of England are expected to generate new business deals worth millions of pounds as Stansted Airport’s annual Meet the Buyers event gets underway at the Hilton Hotel today.
Over 150 local suppliers and 35 buyers are attending the daylong event which last year gave local companies the platform to generate a least £1.3 million of new business.
The event, organised by the BE Group, allows small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) and entrepreneurs direct access to companies based at, or close to Stansted Airport to market and sell their goods. In total an estimated 1000 meetings will take place across the day.
Hosting a business breakfast to kick off proceedings, Andrew Harrison, Stansted Airport's Managing Director, said: “London Stansted Meet the Buyers is fast becoming the must do event in the local business calendar and this year is no exception with a record 35 buyers confirmed, including new organisations like the Ministry of Defence and Aviva.
"Under the new ownership of M.A.G, I am determined to make Stansted the best airport in London."
