HS2 Roadshow for Businesses in North Wales

I am raising awareness of a forthcoming event that High Speed Two (HS2) will be launching next week to help prepare companies across the UK to win work as part of this major infrastructure project.

HS2 is an investment in our national infrastructure that will create thousands of jobs and drive regional regeneration. HS2 Ltd will be visiting several regions across Britain to meet businesses, large and small, advising firms on how to get in the best position to bid for billions of pounds worth of contracts generated by the project.

Through presentations, face-to-face time with HS2 experts, and networking, attendees will hear from, and meet with, the HS2 teams and industry partners responsible for a wide range of aspects of the project including supply chain opportunities health and safety, and skills. At each event participants will discover the scale and timing of contracts and what their business needs to do to get ready to bid.

On Tuesday 28th June 2016 the roadshow will be visiting the Village Hotel Cub St David’s Park, Ewloe. Those wishing to register to attend should do so at: https://www.hs2roadshow2016.co.uk/North-Wales.aspx

I encourage all businesses, large and small, to get involved in this forthcoming HS2 roadshow. It will give you the opportunity to network with other suppliers and understand the process of applying for contracts with HS2.

We have many important businesses based in Flintshire who each have a lot to bring to the process of building the newest train line in the UK in a generation. Being able to talk to other suppliers and those that issue contracts will be an important boon to your business and secure more jobs for north Wales.
