It will take place between 8am and 11am in the WV1 Suite and is open to anyone interested in hearing about supplying goods or services in the city and where to find opportunities.

City partners are committed to working together to increase support for local businesses and create opportunities for local people.

A key part of this is helping businesses work together to create a supply chain that can bid for public and private sector contracts.

Representatives from the University of Wolverhampton, The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Hospital Trust, City of Wolverhampton Council, and Wolverhampton Homes will be available to answer questions.

Exhibitors include Just Patties Logistics, Find It, YPO, Pestokill, BT, Lion FPG, Zeus Packaging, Banner, Galliford Try, Midland Metro Alliance, BSI, Speller Metcalfe, Black Country Growth Hub, City of Wolverhampton College, Something Different, Accord Careers, Enterprise and The Workplace (University of Wolverhampton), The Apprenticeship Hub, Amazon Business, Obillex and Yoo Recruit/Adecco.

Fiona Ward, Head of Procurement at the University of Wolverhampton, said: "This is our third annual event and a great opportunity for local businesses to engage with, not only, public sector organisations but the private sector ones who are also exhibiting. We look forward to another successful event and future collaboration in the sector and region."

Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "Partners in the city are working together to give local companies local procurement opportunities across all sectors.

"Together, partners are committed that every pound spent should have a maximum impact on our city, our residents and our businesses. 

"I am sure suppliers of all shapes and sizes will benefit from meeting some of the biggest buyers in Wolverhampton.

"It is a great way to find out about future contracts and get support on how to tender for upcoming opportunities."
