In today’s business world, with LinkedIn giving us easy access to a global network, it’s easy to overlook local business opportunities.
Local business expos are a great way to connect and re-connect to local businesses and you may well be very surprised at what you find, bump into as a result.
On Thursday 15th March 2018 Winning Tenders took part in the South West Business Expo at West Point, Exeter organised by local entrepreneur Dave Barr. Previously known as the Devon Business Show, the event used to be held at the Matford Centre and has gone from strength to strength: needing more space, it is now held at the Devon County Show Ground.
Sid came along to support us after his usual minder couldn’t take him at the last minute; Dave said it would be fine to bring him along and he certainly entertained the attendees with his wags and thankfully, very few woofs 😉
The brain child of Lord Waverley, SupplyFinder.com allows you to find business partners across the globe and the cherry on top, from our point of view, is the ability to find international RFPs and ITTs.
Currently it is a free platform which enables you to find opportunities around the world by searching their database of over 200,000 active tender opportunities.
SupplyFinder exists to benefit businesses across the world, by highlighting relevant business opportunities along with key supporting information to enable and deliver international trade and investment.
Contracts Finder is a fantastic tool for finding public sector Invitations to Tender ITTs in England and this video is a help guide on to how to use the search facility to find tender writing opportunities for your business.
It’s effective because it uses using Boolean search strings – you don’t really need to know that but it’s the reason that this method will save you time!
