Heathrow summits arrive

As previewed last month (BTN 18 February), Heathrow’s 2018 series of 11 Business Summits kicks off this week with a gathering for the South West region at Saltash in Cornwall on Wednesday (20 March).

A record number of organisations are being invited to work with the airport at the summits to explore new global markets and supply-chain opportunities. After Cornwall, the second session is the East of England meeting on 4 April at Newmarket.

Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye said the summits, organised in conjunction with the Department for International Trade and regional chambers of commerce, will host more than 50 of the airport’s top suppliers.

The objective is to give hundreds of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) access to one-on-one appointments with suppliers and professional trade advisers to give them a chance to cement relationships and forge new connections.

Other venues in chronological order are North East, 3 May, Newcastle; North West, 23 May, Blackburn; East Midlands, 14 June, Nottingham; and Wales, 4 July, Cardiff.

After a summer break, the series moves to Northern Ireland, 17 September, Belfast; Scotland, 10 October, Edinburgh; Yorkshire and Humber, 24 October, York; and West Midlands, 7 November, Stoke-on-Trent.

The series ends with the Flagship Summit on 28 November at Heathrow.
