DPRTE teams up with Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) for a special live webinar

DPRTE 2020 is hosting a pre-event webinar on Monday 8 June at 11 am.

Not to be missed, the “Building the Defence Estates Infrastructure & Connecting Opportunities” webinar will give defence suppliers insight into defence infrastructure procurement, which accounts for over £3bn spend each year.

Held in conjunction with Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), this live event will be presented by Eddie Regan, Principal Procurement Consultant at the Procurement Advice and Support Service (PASS), and guest speaker Nick Wilkinson, Commercial Head of Programmes at the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO).


Building the Defence Estates Infrastructure & Connecting Opportunities

During the webinar, the presenters will explain what the DIO looks for in its suppliers, the types of requirements it has and how DIO is shaping its procurement strategy for the future.

The webinar is a perfect opportunity for DCI customers that want to engage earlier with defence buyers, as these procurement experts will give valuable insight into how to get started in this sector, who the various buyers are, the procurement rules that apply and how to successfully identify, bid for and win tenders. All of this is essential information that will give you the edge over your competitors and help build your share of business across the defence infrastructure and estates sector.

In addition, at the end of the session there an opportunity for you to ask questions directly to Nick and Eddie.
