Heathrow Business Summitt
Heathrow is committed to using its position as a national asset for the particular benefit of SMEs around the country - as committed to in Heathrow 2.0, Heathrow’s plan for Sustainable Growth. Our goal is to enable more and more UK SMEs to connect to new opportunities for growth locally, nationally and internationally. Through the Heathrow Business Summit we are working to connect SMEs with each other, with the airport, and, through the airport, to the world.
The Heathrow Business Summit provides a unique opportunity for SMEs to connect and trade face to face with other SMEs, Heathrow’s supply chain, and in partnership with the Department for International Trade, explore exporting opportunities.
The airport spends up to £1.5bn annually with more than 1,400 suppliers from around the UK, and there will be more work on the horizon under Heathrow’s plans for expansion. Construction of the run way would be the UK’s largest privately-funded infrastructure project, and small and medium-sized businesses will be critical to delivering the £14bn investment.
