The virtual event will be free to join for all and will be hosted by senior leaders from across the Group. The Managing Directors of all three MAG airports – Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands - will provide an overview of their respective businesses, alongside information from MAG’s procurement team about the process of becoming a supplier and current available opportunities.
 
Businesses from across the airports’ surrounding areas in the North West, East Midlands and East of England can sign up to the event here to learn more about their local airport and the wide ranging business opportunities they provide.
 
The Group works with hundreds of partners and suppliers at each of its airports, spending more than £780 million annually.  Suppliers are critical to the effective running of the airports’ operations, which collectively welcomed over 60 million passengers in 2019.
 
As well as gaining insight into working with MAG, businesses can also learn about how to become a leader during changing times through the use of innovation and technology, as well as have an opportunity to network with likeminded businesses.
 
MAG had previously hosted a meet the buyer event at London Stansted Airport for a number of years, and after its long running success, decided to roll the scheme out across the Group to promote the creation of local supply chains which support local businesses.
 
Neil Robinson, MAG CSR and Airspace Change Director said: “Our ‘Runway to Recovery’ meet the buyer event will provide SMEs from the areas local to all three of our airports with the opportunity to get a unique insight into how they could do business with us.
 
“By hearing from our airport Managing Directors and our procurement teams, businesses can see how their product or service could contribute to our supply chains which help our airports run seven days a week, 365 days a year.”
