A line-up of major Suffolk buyers committed to locally sourcing everything from office supplies and printing, to food, drink and services has been announced for the Suffolk Coast Business Showcase  being held on 27 February at High Lodge Leisure, Darsham.

Headliner Levi Roots, star of Dragons’ Den and creator of Reggae Reggae Sauce opens the event with an inspiring breakfast talk to get delegates pitch perfect and ready to meet the buyers and browse the tradeshow.

Suffolk Coastal is home to a diverse array of traditional, leading edge and innovative businesses and the tradeshow at February’s Suffolk Coast Business Showcase, in partnership with Suffolk Coastal District Council Economic Development team and Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, is a great opportunity to discover them all under one roof. Alongside the tradeshow are buyers from larger organisations that must, as part of their purchasing agreements, source products and services locally whenever possible. Appointments can be made in advance for businesses to “pitch” their product or services.

The buyers who will be attending are:

  • Suffolk County Council
  • Suffolk Coastal District Council
  • Vertas
  • East of England Coop – Food and retail
  • Notcutts - Home gift, clothes and food
  • Suffolk Constabulary
  • ABP Ports

Suffolk Coast Business Showcase and Meet the Buyer is on Tuesday, 27 February at High Lodge Leisure, Haw Wood, Nr Darsham IP17 3QT. Breakfast with Levi Roots begins at 8am. Booking is essential as spaces are limited.
