HS2 to Hold Supply Chain Conference in Scotland

High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd has announced that its next Supply Chain Conference will be held in Edinburgh on 5 November 2015. It is the latest in a series of events being held by HS2 to meet prospective suppliers of works, goods and services and will be the start of an on-going process in Scotland to build relationships with the supply chain.

The construction of phase one of HS2 offers a great opportunity for businesses across Scotland, from large contractors to SMEs, to bid for contracts worth around £10 billion in total. The conference will outline the size and scale of the opportunities available and provide advice on how to compete for design and construction contracts. There will also be the opportunity to meet senior representatives from HS2, who will be able to give you all the information and advice you need to get your business ready to work on HS2.

Further details on the conference are available on the GOV.UK website. Places are limited and should be booked as soon as possible via the HS2 website.

HS2 has also produced the following information on HS2 business opportunities:
