Access the Buyer - Estate Management


Time: to


Are you a SME in the estate management sector currently exploring growth and development opportunities?  Access the Buyer is a free event that could give you the chance to explore business opportunities with buyers from major UK and international brands?

Business in the Community, a business-led charity with over 850 members, including 75% of the FTSE 250, is inviting a selected number of SMEs in the estate management sector to take part in an interactive event with up to four Buyers from large businesses, including Sage and Northumbrian Water Group.

The day will feature a combination of purchasing insight, interactive breakout sessions and networking.

The Estate Management industry in the UK is worth over £4bn and employs over 60,000 people.1 Made up of activities including landscaping (hard and soft), grounds maintenance and garden services, the industry offers a range of employment opportunities, and provides a stepping stone into employment for some of society’s most disadvantaged groups.

To register your interest in attending the event:

Please complete the short online application form. Business in the Community will contact you once we have the completed registration form and confirm if you have a place at the event.

SMEs must be based and trading within the UK, but there is no requirement to be based in Gateshead.  This event is targeted at CEO/Founder and Business Development Director level attendees.

About Access the Buyer:
Business in the Community, supported by Santander, has developed Access the Buyer, a new programme to help SMEs access large business supply opportunities. 

The Access the Buyer programme comprises a national series of sector specific events, bringing selected buyers and suppliers together with the aim to do business and help SMEs grow and create jobs.
