HUB South West is supporting Lanarkshire Business Week with two key events.

Firstly, over 50 construction sector members of the hub Club will be meeting at South Lanarkshire Council’s offices in Hamilton for a networking session on Tuesday 27th February.

Secondly, potential suppliers to the construction sector will have the opportunity to showcase their attributes to major companies at a forum. Hosted by hub South West in partnership with Clyde Gateway Lanarkshire, a supplier showcase will be held on Friday, 2nd March at Rutherglen Town Hall.

The supplier showcase will accommodate 35 stands, 15 of which are reserved for Lanarkshire-based businesses. Such has been demand that they are all sold. There will also be learning and information sessions as well as opportunities to “meet the buyer”.

hub South West CEO Michael McBrearty said, “hub South West is committed to engaging positively with the locally based supply chain with a view to helping them improve their chances of gaining hub contracts. By doing this, around £500 million of the anticipated construction spend over the next five years will result in contracts for local companies and jobs for local people.”
