The Meet the Buyer event was organised and hosted by CPCA Growth Hub, the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership’s business signposting service, in partnership with the FSB, and was designed to provide local SMEs with the opportunity to grow their business by meeting with potential new suppliers.

The needs of the buyers at this first event were vast, ranging from print and design to transport, construction and crane hire, which attracted attendees from a wide range of industries to attend.

At the event, suppliers and buyers met in a ‘speed dating’ style, with suppliers given around five minutes to outline their offerings, understand what their potential clients require, and how they may be able to help them.

CPCA Growth Hub Programme Manager, John Stenhouse, said:

“This was the first ever CPCA Growth Hub Meet the Buyer, and we are extremely proud of the positive feedback we received from both the suppliers and the buyers on the day. There were excellent networking opportunities throughout the day, and being able to offer these small businesses, which make up the backbone of the UK economy, the chance to secure new contracts outlines exactly what CPCA Growth Hub is set up to achieve.

“We hope to replicate the success of this Meet the Buyer event across the GCGP area. We encourage all businesspeople within the area, regardless of how large or small their organisation, to keep an eye on the Events section of the CPCA Growth Hub website to identify events across the area that may benefit them.”
