Birmingham’s hosting of the upcoming 2022 Commonwealth Games represents a distinct opportunity for regional firms to pitch for a broad range of contracts.

As a business in the East Midlands, we urge you to come along and find out how your organisation could benefit from the extensive contracts which will be available through the Birmingham 2022 event.

In a bid to keep the outsourcing of available work as localised as possible within the region, this one-off event will enable businesses from across the region to learn about where to locate the contract opportunities, how to tender for up-and-coming contracts and the smarter do's and don'ts involved when pitching for work.

  • Learn about the broad scope of opportunities arising from Birmingham 2022
  • Understand the expectations of suppliers
  • Learn about the procurement processes currently in place
  • Familiarisation with the Finding It in Birmingham portal, and how to identify where the opportunities are to be found
