How Construction Buyers Buy: Get Ready to Supply

September 25 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC


Join our Construction evening drinks networking & give your chance to expand you network!
How Construction Buyers Buy: Get Ready to Supply

The UK Government has highlighted the next ten years as “one of the greatest construction programmes in our history,” representing more than £600 billion of spend in major infrastructure projects, much concentrated around the London area, including Crossrail, a third runway for Heathrow and at least £44 billion for housing.

PBLINK has partnered with Newable to open opportunities for our SME members to supply to the Tier 1 construction companies building these projects. Our evening drinks event takes place in the beautiful and historic Guildhall, in the heart of the City of London.

Event Details

  • Wed, 25 September, 5.30pm, The Guildhall, 80 Basinghall Street, EC2V 5AR
  • Purpose: to learn and understand how Tier 1 construction companies do their buying
  • Newable hope to invite a major buyer (to be confirmed)
  • Priority registration for PBLINK Members and their guests.
  • Limited number of tickets available for non-members
  • Your registration might be refused if you do not represent the construction industry

The formal part of the evening will last 30 minutes. We will start with two interview discussions. First, a PBLINK member will talk about their experience of dealing with buyers, followed by a buyer talking about their expectations from suppliers. Then follows relaxed, informal networking over a snack and a drink when you can exchange business cards with all the other guests as well as with our speakers. Each guest will have the opportunity to deliver a 30-second pitch about their business.

Construction Networking in London is a dedicated group for professionals in the construction sector, including architects and engineers, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, manufacturers and importers of building materials. This is the busiest network we run anywhere in the UK, concentrated around Polish Builders in London.

Free, priority registration for PBLINK Members and their guests.

Your registration might be refused if you do not represent the construction industry.

IMPORTANT – Please treat this (and other Networking events) as a client appointment, don’t book for the sake of booking, or on the chance that you might make it. Other than genuine emergencies, we will be monitoring cancellations very closely.
