Meet the Buyer event well-received
Published 14 Jun 2013A good time was had by all at the Chamber’s “Meet the Buyer” event on Wednesday and Thursday this week. Offering local businesses a chance to hear the latest from SSE, their Tier 1 contractors and Achilles, the event was well-attended and well-received.
Things kicked off on Wednesday night with an informal networking evening, giving attendees the chance to mingle and meet with Chamber and SSE staff prior to the main event.
This informal atmosphere carried over into the following day, with a number of attendees commenting positively on the relaxed nature of the proceedings. The day consisted of a number of short – “pithy”, to borrow the description of one attendee – presentations followed by workshops and one-to-one discussions with SSE and Achilles. The main event also offered further networking opportunities, giving attendees the chance to cement connections developed the night before.
The Chamber would like to thank all who attended, as well as all the SSE, Achilles and contractor representatives, without whom the event could not have happened. Finally, it would be remiss of us not to mention Mackays Hotel and their – as always – fantastic hosting and catering. The carrot cake proved a particular hit, with one attendee so impressed as to make special note of it on his feedback form.
We were also pleased to gain a new member at the event – a warm welcome to Castle Security Group.
