How it works

Director/Buyer and Supplier delegates are based at the venue for 2 days and work through highly focused schedules of one-to-one business meetings and networking sessions. High level business relationships are formed and supply chain opportunities are discussed.

Director/Buyer delegates host their own meeting tables and suppliers meet with them in pre-arranged appointment schedules. Additional social, lunch and dinner networking functions provide extra opportunities to do business.

Forum Venue

Overlooking the Manchester metropolis, this 23-story hotel is in the heart of the city centre. Manchester Arena and Piccadilly Station are a mile away and the hotel is surrounded by museums, shops and restaurants.

 

Wake up to floor-to-ceiling views and spend the evening sipping cocktails at Cloud 23- the highest bar in the city. The health club features a fitness centre, indoor pool, sauna and steam room.

What our clients say...

"A very useful forum for meeting new suppliers. The event itself was held in pleasant and relaxing surroundings, which gave us ample opportunities for further networking within a very convivial atmosphere…

 

"I had many meetings with top suppliers who under normal circumstances would be difficult to meet with. The networking opportunities gave me quality time to build long term relationships."
