The pre-arranged one-to-one procurement meetings between OEMs and SMEs will look to build new relationships with potential business contacts.

OEMs will explain their procurement practices and the areas they are currently looking to focus on whilst SMEs will understand what is required to work with OEMs. These purpose built meetings will bring both parties together, avoiding the time, hassle and exertions usually used.

For reference, last year’s OEMs included the likes of; JCB, Unipart Manufacturing Group, Bentley Motors, AstraZeneca and many others. Our SME attendees revealed how they were delighted at the available OEMs to talk with and the new contacts they made.
