Gatwick Diamond Meet the Buyers 2018

21st November 2018

The Arora Hotel, Crawley


Gatwick Diamond Business is the Event Delivery Partner of Gatwick Diamond Meet the Buyers 2018.

Following the success of the Gatwick Diamond Meet the Buyers event in 2017, plans are well under way for the Meet the Buyers Programme 2018, with the main event on 21st November 2018 at the Arora Hotel.

Rosemary French, Executive Director of the Gatwick Diamond Initiative, said; “The 2017 Programme has generated in the region of £700,000 in orders placed or planned from suppliers, with an average spend of around £5,000.  Furthermore, one of our Buyers has added every one of the suppliers they have met to their tender list, so who knows how much more could be generated?”

The 2018 Programme will deliver Free Workshops for businesses across the region to learn how to grow their business with topics including (but not limited to):

  • Breaking New Markets in a Post-Brexit Britain
  • Digital & Social Media Marketing
  • Effective Sales Processes and Practices
  • Networking for Real Business Growth
  • Presentation & Public Speaking Skills
  • Using Innovation and Sustainability in your Business

For 2018 there is an online matching service ( please complete your profile here) which will allow Buyers to state their needs and Suppliers to put forward the products and services they can provide.  Buyers will then select appointments with potential Suppliers that match their needs.


Once sufficient matches with the registered Buyers have been found, suppliers places will be confirmed, and you will be sent an online payment request. 


If your business is located within the Gatwick Diamond Region, then the cost has been subsidised by the Sponsors and is £125 +VAT per delegate

Members of Supporting Partner Organisations will also receive the discounted rate of £125 +VAT per delegate

Located outside the Gatwick Diamond area? Don't worry you can still attend and your ticket will cost £250 +Vat per delegate.
