In Detail

We are excited to announce that a number of the contractors appointed to deliver Birmingham 2022, will be participating in a West Midlands Growth Hubs joint event, to promote opportunities for local suppliers and SMEs to get involved in the Games.

To maximise the chances of more regional businesses leaving their mark on Birmingham 2022, the Growth Hubs are hosting an online supplier event, and urging local firms to register for FREE to hear about current and upcoming procurement opportunities and discover how they can bid for contracts with these suppliers.

In the run up to the momentous Commonwealth Games in July 2022, there are still plenty of local opportunities for the supply of materials, goods and services. From trades and construction, through to procurement connected to these awarded contracts, this is a golden opportunity for SMEs.
