"This event was well structured with great attendance. It was good to speak with big main contractors, and the fact that we were able to speak to procurement people within those organisations made the day for us. This was not our first event, and it certainly won’t be our last."

"The demand for this event was phenomenal. Workloads in the industry seem to be picking up, and events like this are perfect for putting buyers in touch with suppliers for those contracts."

"Initially, we started out with Constructionline as a supplier. In regards to winning work opportunities, we found our membership very useful. The Opportunities Notice Board offers the ability to tender for valuable work projects - a very good source of work for our pipeline.
However, we now operate as a buyer in the majority of cases. This arrangement relieves Osborne in the task of checking suppliers’ health and safety, waste licenses and insurances - thus considerably reducing our administrative processes."
Nicole Barrett - Compliance Officer
"The ability to talk to buyers in such an informal manner was useful. In most circumstances it’s difficult to meet the right people, so coming to an event like this makes a lot of sense to us."
