Heathrow Business Summit
On November 10th Slough Borough Council's Economic Development team attended the Heathrow Business Summit at the Park Inn by Radisson at Heathrow Airport as a key stakeholder.
The Heathrow Business Summit is a unique opportunity for SMEs to connect and trade face to face with Heathrow’s supply chain and connect to growth opportunities locally, nationally and internationally. Heathrow is committed to using its position as a national asset for the benefit of SMEs. As the UK’s hub airport, Heathrow connects businesses up and down the UK to crucial growth markets around the world. The Heathrow Business Summit has for 19 years connected SMEs to new business opportunities with each other, the airport and through the airport to the world.
This year 330 delegates from 217 SME's attended a record breaking summit which saw a 44% increase in participation from last year, and 1248 buying appointments took place. This is such a great event to be a part of, and we're thrilled to be supporting local business to source work with Heathrow's major suppliers.
Information will follow shortly on the 2016 and Slough Borough Council will be attending once again as a key Stakeholder.
