Delcam to host UKTI Aerospace 'Meet the Buyer' event in March
26 January 2011
Delcam is to host an international Aerospace Meet the Buyer event at its Birmingham headquarters on Wednesday, March 2 2011. The event is being organised by UK Trade & Investment and the Enterprise Europe Network, in partnership with the Midlands Aerospace Alliance and Advantage West Midlands. More than 30 aerospace OEMs and tier-one manufacturers are expected to attend, to meet sub-contractors and talk about their supply-chain requirements.
“Our Meet the Buyer event will help aerospace suppliers to meet high-calibre, budget-holding buyers from the international aerospace sector,” says Peter Stevenson, International Trade Adviser with UKTI. “It will give them the opportunity to obtain qualified sales leads that are essential to grow their businesses in the current climate. Overall, we expect to arrange over 500 meetings between 30 international buyers and 90 UK companies.”
“We were very happy to support UKTI by providing the venue for the event,” said Delcam Marketing Manager, Peter Dickin. “Staff from UKTI have given us significant help in building our international business so hosting this meeting will go a small way towards repaying them.”
“Of course, we are not being completely magnanimous in offering our facilities as we hope that some of the buyers will be interested in our manufacturing software and services,” he added. “We will also be encouraging our aerospace sub-contract customers to attend. There is always the chance that they might win more business and so need to add more of our software.”
Companies already committed to taking part include Rolls Royce, Aerotech Peissenberg, Lufthansa Technik and Hispano-Suiza.
