Virtual Meet the Contractor Event

HS2’s Virtual Meet the Contractor event was a 4 day event to open up opportunities on HS2, the largest infrastructure project in Europe to SMEs across the UK. In contrast to previous events this was held entirely virtually, providing challenges but also significant opportunities for the organisers to engage with more organisations than in previous events. Over 1700 individuals from 1300 organisations attended in some form, with 97% from UK based organisations and 81% from UK based SMEs.
