Local businesses are being invited to attend a special event to find out more about how they could win contracts to provide services for South Holland District Council.

The Meet the District Council Buyers event, to be held on 24th February, will give businesses a chance to speak to members of the council's various teams about the diverse range of goods and services bought by South Holland. The event is open to all local businesses.

The companies will have an opportunity to hear more about how South Holland selects suppliers before talking about the services they can provide and how they could support the council to deliver first class services to residents and businesses. The event will also provide an opportunity for networking with other local businesses.

Julie Kennealy, South Holland District Council's Executive Director of Commercialisation, commented: "South Holland buys a vast range of goods and services on behalf of residents and businesses, as well as behind the scenes services which enable the council to operate".

Cllr Nick Worth, Portfolio holder for Commercialisation, said: "This event will provide local businesses an opportunity to find out more about the sort of contracts that South Holland offers and how they could become a supplier in the future. It also means our teams can find out more about the businesses that are out there which are offering new and exciting ideas, services, and ways of operating, which could help us further enhance our services and become more efficient and effective".

When booking their place, businesses will be asked to identify their area of expertise so they can be matched with the most appropriate Council team. Service categories range from architects and financial services, to cleaning services, marketing materials, and security, so any business will be able to attend.

The Meet the District Council Buyers event will take place at the South Holland Centre, 23 Market Place, Spalding, PE11 1SS on 24th February, from 4pm. The closing date for registration is 5.30pm on 15th February. For more information and to book your place, email:economicdevelopment@sholland.gov.uk
