Heathrow to host business summit
Thu 26 March 2015, 1:04 pm
Heathrow Airport has announced it is hosting a business summit in November for companies in Ealing and five other west London boroughs.
The event takes place at the Park Inn by Radisson, Heathrow, on 10 November, where workshops will take place to give SMEs the opportunity to meet and trade with one another.
The aim is to help facilitate growth by businesses sharing opportunities, knowledge and expertise, and to expand the number of companies who join the local Chambers of Commerce.
Another purpose of the summit is to offer SMEs advice on how to maximise procurement opportunities with the airport, and tap into new supply chain opportunities. The summit will encourage participating organisations to open more sub-contracts for large-scale services, which could provide further opportunities.
The business summit also aims to help businesses make the most of Heathrow’s connectivity to export and global growth opportunities.
A spokesperson for the airport said that more than 400 businesses in the area operate on the Heathrow campus, and thousands more benefit from the airport in the west London boroughs.
