Rochdale Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

BUSI­NESSES across Rochdale will have the chance to pitch for busi­ness with big pub­lic sec­tor or­gan­i­sa­tions at a Meet the Buyer event.

At Rochdale Town Hall on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 22, man­agers and busi­ness own­ers will be able to speak di­rectly to buy­ers from com­pa­nies in­clud­ing STAR pro­cure­ment, the shared ser­vice for Stock­port, Traf­ford, Tame­side and Rochdale coun­cils, as well as Rochdale Bor­ough­wide Hous­ing, hop­wood Hall Col­lege and the North­ern Care Al­liance NHS Group.

Meet the Buyer events help to match goods and ser­vices of­fered by busi­nesses with pur­chas­ing teams from com­pa­nies look­ing to buy in sec­tors in­clud­ing con­struc­tion and de­mo­li­tion, IT, CCTV in­stal­la­tion and main­te­nance and fa­cil­i­ties and es­tate man­age­ment.

Coun John Blun­dell, cabi­net mem­ber for re­gen­er­a­tion at Rochdale coun­cil, said: “Big or­gan­i­sa­tions like coun­cils have huge buy­ing power and are al­ways look­ing to keep spend lo­cal wher­ever pos­si­ble, so this is a great op­por­tu­nity for small and medium-sized busi­nesses to sell their goods and ser­vices on a big stage.”
