Past Meet the Buyer events
MBIE has run four Meet the Buyer events. These were held in Wellington (2012), in Auckland (2013, 2014), and in Christchurch (2014).
The two most recent events focussed on specific sectors, construction in Canterbury (Christchurch 2014) and health technology (Auckland 2014). The Auckland (2013) and Wellington (2012) events concentrated on the government’s general purchasing needs.
The Auckland 2014 event was run concurrently with the Medical Technology Association of New Zealand’s Heathcare Congress.
The Auckland 2013 event involved 19 buyers and more than 350 businesses.
