Heathrow Business Summit

[ 18-10-2017 ]

Scottish Chambers of Commerce Network and Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce are looking forward to hosting the Heathrow Business Summit this October, in partnership with Heathrow.


This year, Heathrow are hosting six new Regional Business Summits across the UK in addition to their flagship event in November, to appeal to more small British firms and give them an insight into Heathrow's major suppliers to help them win new contracts in the future.

The Heathrow Business Summit held in Edinburgh this October offers the unique opportunity for Edinburgh and Scottish SMEs to make key connections and trade face to face with Heathrow’s supply chain and seek out growth opportunities locally, nationally and internationally. Heathrow is committed to using its position as a national asset for the benefit of SMEs. As the UK’s hub airport, Heathrow connects businesses up and down the UK to crucial growth markets around the world.

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 £16bn investment.

The Heathrow Business Summit on 18 October will give local businesses the chance to have free 15 minute face-to-face appointments with Heathrow’s supply chain in a one day event taking place at Royal College of Surgeons from 10am – 4pm which includes breakfast, a light lunch and refreshments for all guests.

Why Attend?

• Promote your business to Heathrow's supply chain through face-to-face appointments on the day
• Meet and network with exhibitor partners including the Local Council and Chamber of Commerce
