HS2 Roadshow: Supplier Engagment - Bristol, 30th June


HS2 will be the UK’s new high speed railway, providing fast, frequent and reliable services, connecting eight of our largest cities. It will be a catalyst for growth across the country, and is the biggest and most ambitious infrastructure project in Europe.

HS2 Ltd will visit 11 regions across the UK to meet a broad range of companies to discuss the thousands of supply chain opportunities that will be available. We want to explain the types of work on offer, let you know how to get involved, and advise how to put yourself in the best position to win work.

Through presentations, face-to-face time with HS2 experts and networking, participants will hear from, and meet with, the HS2 teams and industry partners responsible for Supply Chain, Health and Safety, Community Relations, Building Information Modelling (BIM), Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), Skills, Employment and Education and Environment. At each event participants will discover the scale and timing of contracts and what their business needs to do to get ready to bid.
