Automotive trade 'Meet the Buyer' event

This year’s annual automotive Meet the Buyer event is on Tuesday 12 May in central London. Apply by Friday 13 March to be considered for an invite.

The UK’s leading automotive trade association, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) helps to facilitate business opportunities through regular ‘Meet the Buyer’ events, designed to provide a platform to build new and strengthen existing business relationships. 2015’s event in London will look to support purchasing professionals across the UK as well as those overseas looking to source from UK based suppliers and encourage inward investment in processes not currently supported in the UK.

The events aim to match OEM and tier 1 buyers to suitable suppliers based on the buyer sourcing requirements. Past Meet the Buyer events have been heavily focused on increasing sourcing from UK based companies and have all received good feedback and continuously receive considerable interest from both buyers and suppliers to participate year after year.

SMMT and UKTI’s Automotive Investment Organisation (AIO) will jointly host the event in 2015 to support the sourcing activities of both UK and overseas purchasing organisations, and encourage inwards investment in processes not currently supported in the UK. Visit the SMMT website for more details.
