The Royal Docks Meet the Buyer is fully funded by London City Airport in partnership with the London Borough of Newham for local suppliers to engage directly with large buyers in a series of private, pre-booked sales meetings. Our bespoke matching service allows you to fully tailor your approach and pitch to senior procurement executives who have specified what they are looking for and the size of the contracts in advance.




The Royal Docks Meet the Buyers offers an opportunity to connect and trade with regional and national buyers and is fully funded by London City Airport for local SMEs located in Newham, Islington, Hackney, Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets, Redbridge, Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Lewisham, Greenwich, Southwark, Lambeth, Bexley, Bromley and Croydon.


Through precise matching services, we ensure that you can fully tailor your approach and pitch to procurement representatives who have specified what they are looking for and the size of the contracts in advance.


This is your opportunity to meet face – face with 20 buyers who are actively sourcing, issuing tenders, obtaining quotes and awarding supplier contracts.

Our process is easy:

  • Before the event: select which buyers and projects are of interest to you and sign up for the pre-event workshop

  • At the event: you follow a personalised schedule of one-to-one appointments

  • After the event: keep in touch by participating in our post event workshops


This will enable you to meet directly with buyers that have a need for your products and services rather than spending months trying to arrange meetings. The buyers who are attending are there specifically to meet and network with new suppliers. If you want an opportunity to sell to them to get a step ahead of your competition, book your place today to:

  • Save time – avoid time wasting on cold calls, we provide direct access to the decision makers

  • Save money – drive out the cost of tedious business development by meeting your customers in one place

  • Keep it relevant – we organise your schedule, guaranteeing your one-on-one appointments

  • Stay in the know – learn about projects in the pipeline and upcoming contracts

  • Network with peers – meet with other professionals looking to develop their supply chain and share ideas

We bring together over 20 active buyers
