Manchester Construction Networking Event

On Thursday the 19th September, we hosted a construction-focused networking event on the rooftop terrace of Great John Street Hotel, Manchester.

Whilst overlooking the stunning views of Manchester, enjoying one of the last sunny days of the year whilst counting the number of cranes surrounding the city, senior construction and building supply chain professionals came together over a drink, discussing hot topics and ways one another could help the other.

With a lack of construction focused events in the North West, we wanted to change this and bring the construction community together on a regular basis, offering one another support and guidance, whilst providing attendees the opportunity to learn and expand their knowledge on timely topics within the industry.

With that being said, the focus of the event was Supplier Relationship Management, discussing ways we can harness our relationships with our suppliers to optimise processes. Guests speakers from Hyman Capital, Nigel Ransom and Dennis Horner, used their own experience and knowledge to explore a number of different processes the industry can implement.

    What is a Stakeholder?

    A stakeholder is a Mircosite that has the power to highlight a product or service, launch a promotion, or promote brand awareness to the construction industry in a way that full websites or more traditional marketing cannot.

    All stakeholders have the ability to have their latest press releases and case studies promoted across the UK Construction Online platform. UK Construction Online is updated daily, with the latest news across all sectors within the construction industry and all stakeholders are promoted on both social media and to a mailing list of over 122,000 subscribers.
