Businesses invited to attend HS2 Supply Chain Roadshow

Worcestershire businesses are being encouraged to attend one of the eleven HS2 Ltd roadshow events across the UK.

The sessions which take place in venues across the UK between May and September, are for companies interested in exploring supply chain opportunities created by HS2 and through presentations and networking, attendees will hear from, and meet with, the HS2 teams and industry partners responsible for Supply Chain, Health and Safety, Community Relations, Building Information Modelling (BIM), Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), Skills, Employment and Education and Environment.

At each event participants will discover the scale and timing of contracts and what their business needs to do to get ready to bid. The event will attract innovative suppliers from a range of industries, infrastructure subcontractors and engineering and manufacturing companies that can diversify their operations and join the HS2 Supply Chain.

  • Design services
