Essex Chambers of Commerce chief executive Denise Rossiter said: ”We are thrilled to be holding this event providing wonderful opportunities for local businesses to meet with high profile buyers to help promote local procurement.

“As the leading business support organisation, covering the whole of Essex, we are proud to facilitate this event and feel that this event will help sustain business growth supporting economic growth in the heart of our county.”

“Often approaching and supplying major firms and public sector organisations is perceived to be complicated with perhaps insurmountable barriers.

  • This sounds like a great event for a local company like ours, Euroloo to be involved with, and we will be looking to promote our portable toilet hire services, emergency hire services and liquid waste disposal services to all local authorities and businesses attending.
