Welcome to London Stansted Meet the Buyers


The 2016 London Stansted Meet the Buyers is taking place on Thursday 6th October at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Stansted, CM24 1PP.

This event gives suppliers the opportunity to meet Buyers from over 35 major companies and organisations from across the region, and Buyers from leading organisations to find new, locally based suppliers. All attending Buyers have requirements for products, services and are seeking new suppliers.

There will also be an opportunity to network with many businesses from the area, including a facilitated Networking Session.

We will be adding Buyers details leading up to the event, so revisit the site to see the latest details and see what they are looking to source.

FAQs


QWho can attend?
AThe event is open to SME companies in the local area.
QHow can I book?
Click Here to go to the Book Now page.
QHow do I know if the buyers want what I supply?
AWhen our buyers confirm attendance they complete a 'Purchasing Requirement Form'. This form contains both their general areas of interest, and specific details about procurement needs in the upcoming six to eighteen months.

From these forms, we compile a "Buyers' Catalogue" containing all their requirements, listed by buyer. Then, select up to fourteen in priority order with whom you would like to meet.
QHow are my meetings allocated?
AWhen we receive your meeting requests they are entered into a computer system. You are issued appointments based on your compatibility with their requirements, and the order in which you requested them.

After this point we manually edit the lists, to ensure everyone receives the maximum number of relevant appointments.

We recommend that you read the catalogue thoroughly and pick buyers who require your products/services, as our matching process will allocate your meetings based on these requirements.

In the event that we are unable to match you for less than 4 appointments, we will offer you the opportunity to withdraw with a full refund.
QHow many meetings can I have?
AWe endeavour to schedule as many meetings as possible, but on average we expect to organise seven meetings for each supplier. Our matching process often exceeds this, sometimes allocating up to twelve.

Each Buyer’s appointments for the day are shown by their station, and Suppliers can book in where the schedule allows.
QHow long are the meetings?
AYour meetings will last 10 minutes each. You will be surprised at how easily this can be enough time to get that vital first introduction, stimulate interest in your product or service, and agree upon a course of action.
QWhen will I receive my appointment calendar?
ATo give you the opportunity to edit your appointment request list in case of last-minute buyer sign-ups, we issue appointment schedules a week in advance of the event.
QCan I bring a colleague?
AOur basic fee structure is per delegate. If you would like to double your meetings for the day to increase your exposure to potential buyers, you are welcome to register two delegates for the Meet the Buyer event. Otherwise, a second delegate from the same company is £50 + VAT for SME and £100 + VAT for larger organisations.
QHow much does Meet the Buyers cost?
AThe cost per delegate from an SME is: £125+ VAT. For a non-SME the cost is £325 +VAT.
QHow many buyers will be there on the day?
ALast year 30 buyers attended the event, this year we will have 35+ buyers. A number of exhibitors and speakers will also be present, increasing networking opportunities when you are not in meetings.
QCan I bring my products to show the buyers?
AYes, as long as you can easily move them from booth to booth and carry them around with you during the day.
QAre refreshments included?
AA buffet lunch is provided, and tea, coffee and water are free-flowing throughout the day. Please let us know at the time of booking if you have any allergies.
Q When should I arrive?
AWe ask that all attendees arrive at least 20 minutes before their first appointment so they can register, settle in, and familiarise themselves with the layout. Additional appointments may be available on the day, so arriving early also allows you to book for last-minute meetings.
QWhere can I park?
AFollow signs to the GREEN Car Park, next to the Radisson Blu Hotel. Do not park at the Radisson Blu Hotel. A free exit ticket will be given to you at the event.
QWhat is the definition of an SME?
AAn SME is defined as having less than 250 employees. An SME cannot be more than 25% owned by a company outside these parameters.
