Companies from around the world with expertise in facilities management services, such as landscaping, maintenance and cleaning, found out how they could become part of the Expo 2020 Dubai journey at the latest Meet the Buyer event.

The series aims to connect representatives of companies, including small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), with members of the Expo 2020 Dubai Procurement team and its main contractors to help them take advantage of a wide range of opportunities available in the run-up to, and during, Expo.

This edition of Meet the Buyer attracted representatives from more than 115 companies and business councils from 13 countries including Australia, France, India, Oman and the UAE, and showcased how Expo 2020 Dubai can be a platform for the region to show a different, modern, progressive side to its culture and people.

The Meet the Buyer event took place during the Expo 2020 Dubai Procurement team’s search for facilities management suppliers, with the request for information (RFI) period now open. These opportunities will be available until October 4, 2017 and companies of all sizes should register now on the Expo 2020 Dubai e-Sourcing portal to find out more:

Manal AlBayat, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Integration at Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “Expo 2020 Dubai is committed to building a long-lasting and sustainable economic legacy, not just for the UAE but for the wider region of the Middle East.

“Companies of all sizes are recognising the opportunities for them to be part of the Expo journey, and the benefits and long-term value that participation has to offer.”

This Meet the Buyer edition was for both ‘soft’ services, such as cleaning, litter collection, landscaping and pest control, and ‘hard’ services, such as air conditioning maintenance, repair works and plumbing, as well as waste management.

It offered firms interested in bidding for contracts the chance to find out about the full facilities management potential at Expo 2020 Dubai, including immediate and upcoming opportunities, directly from the Expo team.
