SMMT runs a number of Meet the Buyer style events, each aimed at helping buyers meet suppliers that fit their particular needs at any point during their purchasing cycle.
The events are regularly used by organisations of all shapes and sizes to find new suppliers, connect with old ones or to lay the foundations for future partnerships.
SMMT has a strong track record of delivering value through these events to both buyers and suppliers, with events always being oversubscribed.
Meet the Buyer May 2021
This year, SMMT will be hosting Meet the Buyer May 2021 digitally on 20 May 2021.
