Greater Manchester Chamber is delighted to be hosting the Heathrow Business Summit in partnership with Heathrow Airport.
Heathrow is committed to using its position as a national asset for the particular benefit of SMEs around the country - as committed to in Heathrow 2.0, Heathrow’s plan for Sustainable Growth. Its goal is to enable more and more UK SMEs to connect to new opportunities for growth locally, nationally and internationally. Through the Heathrow Business Summit the team will be working to connect SMEs with each other, with the airport, and, through the airport, to the world.
In 2018, Heathrow will host a series of Heathrow Business Summits across the UK, including Manchester. These events provide a unique opportunity for SMEs to connect and trade face to face with other SMEs, Heathrow’s supply chain and in partnership with the Department for International Trade, explore exporting opportunities.
The airport spends over £1.5bn annually with more than 1,200 suppliers from around the UK and there will be more work on the horizon with expansion. Construction of the runway will be the UK's largest infrastructure project and small and medium-sized businesses will be critical to delivering the £14bn investment.
