Businesses across the Marches are being given the chance to play their part in helping deliver the Commonwealth Games later this year.

Growth hubs across the Midlands have organised a special ‘meet the buyer’ event on February 3 featuring five of the contractors appointed to deliver the Games.

They will each present further opportunities for local suppliers and SMEs and will talk one-to-one with businesses in a Virtual Meeting Room.

A spokesman for the West Midlands Growth Hubs cluster – which includes the Marches Growth Hub – said: “To maximise the chances of more regional businesses leaving their mark on Birmingham 2022, the Growth Hubs are hosting this large Meet the Buyer extravaganza and urging local firms to register for FREE.

“In the run up to the momentous Commonwealth Games in July 2022, there will still be plenty of local opportunities for the supply of materials, goods and services. From trades and construction, through to procurement connected to these awarded contracts, there is a golden opportunity for SMEs.”

    GL Events – Official Overlay Supporter

    Arena Events Group – Delivery of Venue Structures, Seating and Infrastructure

    CSM Live – Wayfinding and Signage Provider

    Birmingham Ceremonies Ltd – Opening and Closing Ceremonies
