Mechanical and Civil Engineering Meet the Buyer event

21st November 2012, Hilton Hotel, London Heathrow

The Mechanical and Civil Engineering Meet the Buyer event was held in the Hilton T4 hotel at Heathrow on 21st November. Over 60 companies registered and approximately 100 people were there on the day to hear about the requirements of CERN, ESO, ESRF, ILL and ISIS. We held in the region of 130 one-to-one interviews and the feedback from both companies and facilities was very positive and there is a high probability of contracts being placed as a result of the meeting.

The talks can be found in the links below and if you have any questions about the content of the talks or would like to tender to any of these facilities, please contact the Head of Business Opportunities for International Facilities, Julie Bellingham.
