30 October @ 9:00 am 1:00 pm

We are delighted to once again be partnering with Devon & Plymouth Chamber to bring you the second Pitch & Procure event in Exeter!

Promoting and facilitating local procurement is a key strategic priority of both Chambers. We know that many local large organisations, local authorities and the NHS are working actively to increase their spend locally. However, a combination of businesses being put off by the procurement process and major procurers being unaware of some of the products and services that local businesses can provide is preventing building resilient local supply chains.

This unique event brings enterprising local businesses together with several major procuring organisations giving businesses a chance to showcase their products and services to these prime procurers. It will open up opportunities to engage directly with them, encourage them into dialogue or advise on how to enter the tendering and procurement process. The format is short, sharp and interactive.

A panel of five major procurers will be in the front row of an audience that hears a series of short sharp pitches from several businesses in quick succession, followed by a brief Q&A.

Our panel of very senior procurement leaders with be announced soon…

Following the Q&A the procurers can choose which businesses, if any, they wish to further conversations with. That may be as simple as being sent details of how to register for tender information and enter the procurement process, or an invitation to a further exploratory meeting. 

The Chambers can broker these communications and introduce successful pitchers to additional support in preparing their tenders. At the conclusion of the presentations there will be the opportunity to continue networking or follow up on conversations with our procurers.

You need to be a member of Exeter Chamber of Commerce or Devon & Plymouth to be eligible to pitch. Please email [email protected] if you would like to express your interest in pitching.
