After the success of 2022’s inaugural event, Marlborough Highways is excited to announce that its Meet the Buyer Day will return to Wanstead Golf Club in East London on Tuesday 26 September 2023. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Green Solutions’, with new and existing suppliers invited to showcase their latest products and services to a captive audience. The Marlborough team are particularly interested in innovations that will help them to operate in a more sustainable way, as part of the organisation’s ambitious commitment to go Net Zero by 2025. The morning session will be followed by an optional Charity Golf Day, in support of the mental health charity, Mind.
Kicking off at 8:30am, the day will provide companies based in London and the South East with the opportunity to introduce their eco-friendly products to key decisionmakers and learn more about Marlborough’s procurement process. The session, which is free to attend and includes breakfast and a buffet lunch, represents Marlborough’s commitment to work with local businesses based in the locations in which it operates.
Attendees are also invited to a complementary charity golf match immediately following the Meet the Buyer event. Teeing off at 1pm, guests will be able to enjoy a relaxed game of golf. Players will have the option to support the company’s chosen charity Mind, by donating on the dedicated Marlborough Highways Just Giving page.
Marlborough knows that operating in a sustainable way is vital for the well-being of the planet, its clients, and the communities in which it serves. The event will allow the company to improve its supply chain and to establish new relationships with organisations that share in its commitment to protecting the environment and to decarbonising the highways industry.
Matthew Revell, Managing Director at Marlborough Highways said, “Following the incredible success of last year’s event, we are eagerly anticipating an even bigger and better Meet the Buyer Day this September. As we continue to expand and diversify our supply chain, our goal is to build stronger relationships with forward-thinking businesses that share in our vision, to enable us to support our clients and improve the communities that we serve. This promises to be a fantastic day and I am really pleased that through our golf day, we can also support the charity Mind.”
