Oxford City Council is hosting a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event at the Town Hall in Oxford, from 9.30 am on Tuesday 28th February 2023.

Whether you are already a supplier to Oxford City Council or are an impact enterprise in Oxfordshire keen to become one, then this event is for you.

It will provide an ideal opportunity to meet and network with other local businesses, public and voluntary sector bodies. You will also hear from inspiring speakers, on a range of relevant and interesting topics, including the significant shift in demand for Social Value to be demonstrated by suppliers. There will also be demonstrations on tendering portals and other ‘how to’ workshops.

Partners include Aspire, OSEP CIC, under OxLEP’s fully funded eScalate programme, local businesses, Oxford Direct Services, and the Oxfordshire Inclusive Economy Partnership.
