High Speed Two (HS2), our new North-South rail link, is the biggest and most ambitious infrastructure project in the UK, and the first new railway to be built north of London in over 120 years.
At £21.4bn, the construction of Phase One presents a great opportunity for businesses across the UK, from large to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), to benefit from tens of thousands of supply chain opportunities. HS2 will need a full range of works, goods and services, covering many sectors, over the total programme’s 20-year lifespan. By contributing their innovation, experience and capabilities, businesses from across the UK of all types and sizes will help make this an exemplary project.
HS2 is therefore offering industry the opportunity to attend its next Supply Chain Conference, to hear about the development of its outline procurement strategy and how businesses from across the UK can get involved in working on HS2. After the success of the inaugural conference last year, two events will run this year to ensure as many businesses as possible have the chance to be involved.
The events, which are free to attend, will be held on 17 October 2014 in London and 23 October 2014 in Manchester.
Places at the Supply Chain Conference are limited. For more information and registration click here
