HS2 Regional Roadshow is coming to Cambridge

HS2 will be the UK’s new high speed railway, providing fast, frequent and reliable services, connecting eight of our largest cities.

On 5th July, HS2’s regional roadshow will be coming to Cambridge.

HS2 Ltd will be holding their supply chain regional roadshow 2016 across 11 different regions in the UK from May to September, meeting companies interested in exploring the thousands of supply chain opportunities created by HS2.

The event will give participants the chance to meet and network with the HS2 team and wider partners, to highlight opportunities the new railway will create.

You will hear from those responsible for Supply Chain, Health and Safety, Community Relations, Building Information Modelling (BIM), Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), Skills, Employment and Education and Environment.

At each event participants will discover the scale and timing of contracts and what their business needs to do to get ready to bid.

The event will take place between 08:30 – 13:30, and the programme will consist of a plenary session covering supply chain opportunities and supplier guidance, along with time for networking where delegates can meet with exhibitors.
