Event Detail

Businesses across the Midlands are being invited to a special event to provide a detailed update on the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and the extensive procurement and supply chain opportunities available for SMEs in Coventry & Warwickshire.
 
The event – which will take place prior to the Chamber's Trade Local Business Expo on Friday 15th March at NAEC Stoneleigh - will be hosted by Organising Committee Chairman John Crabtree OBE and hear from Ian Reid, Games CEO, and Neil Carney, Birmingham City Council Project Director overseeing the Games.
 
John Crabtree, Chair of the Birmingham Organising Committee for the 2022 Commonwealth Games said: "The Organising Committee and its Games Partners will contract many hundreds of companies and suppliers to help deliver Birmingham 2022, or projects related to the Games. 
 
"For the Glasgow 2014 and Gold Coast 2018 Games, Organising Committee contracts alone had a total value of £241m and £333m respectively. On the Gold Coast, 84% of these contracts were won by local or regional businesses; in Glasgow, 76% of the total value of contracts awarded went to Glaswegian or Scottish companies. 
 
"The local and regional business community will therefore play an essential role in the success of the Games; and we are truly looking forward to beginning the process of informing and supporting businesses about Birmingham 2022 opportunities.”
 
The briefing will offer practical information on the opportunities for businesses arising from the Games themselves and related infrastructure projects. There will also be panel discussions exploring their potential impact on the city-region and will hear from the first businesses to secure Birmingham 2022 tenders. It will be open to all sectors and sizes of business and provide introductory information about the Organising Committee’s contracting and procurement approach.

The Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce is coordinating the event, which will also be widely promoted and supported by local business community, Local Authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships.
