Meet The Pur­chasers

The Daily Press (Timmins) - - NEWS -

The Tim­mins Cham­ber of Com­merce will be host­ing its eighth-an­nual Meet the Pur­chasers event next week. The event is an op­por­tu­nity for small- and medium-sized busi­nesses to meet pur­chasers such as min­ing com­pa­nies, the City of Tim­mins, and lo­cal col­leges. Par­tic­i­pat­ing pur­chasers will share what they buy lo­cally, how their buy­ing process works and how lo­cal busi­nesses can be part of it. Carmen Swartz, man­ager of mem­ber ser­vices with the Tim­mins Cham­ber of Com­merce, ex­plained the event op­er­ates like a “re­verse trade show,” where those be­hind the booths are the ones mak­ing the pur­chases while the at­ten­dees are the sales­peo­ple. swartz said this event is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to net­work with busi­nesses and to gain ac­ces­si­bil­ity to the pur­chases. The Cor­po­ra­tion of the City of Tim­mins, De­tour Gold, Du­mas, JS Red­path, Kidd Op­er­a­tions, Lake Shore Gold Corp., Primero Min­ing, Gold­corp Por­cu­pine Gold Mines, and Col­lege Bo­real are among the pur­chas­ing com­pa­nies in at­ten­dance. Swartz said the Tim­mins Cham­ber hopes this yearly event makes it eas­ier for lo­cal busi­nesses to get ac­cess to op­por­tu­ni­ties to pro­vide their goods and ser­vices to large in­dus­tries. The cost to at­tend will be $40 for Cham­ber mem­bers and $55 for gen­eral ad­mis­sion. The cost in­cludes con­ti­nen­tal break­fast. The event will take place in the au­di­to­rium at the Mcin­tyre Com­mu­nity Build­ing on Jan. 17 from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. reg­is­ter on­line at www. tim­min­scham­ or for more in­for­ma­tion con­tact the Tim­mins Cham­ber at 705-360-1900.
