A HS2 Supply Chain Conference will be held at the ICC in Birmingham on Tuesday 5 November 2013. The conference will be the first in a series of events enabling suppliers to meet with the HS2 team, as well as with companies from the wider infrastructure supply market. Following the conference, HS2 Ltd will conduct a market engagement exercise to discuss suppliers’ views on its plans for the delivery of the network.
HS2 will provide a once in a generation opportunity to drive growth, generate jobs, develop skills and keep our country moving as demand for passenger and freight capacity on our railways continues to increase. There is no question that achieving these goals will be a huge undertaking and as part of its early development, HS2 Ltd wishes to share with industry its thoughts on the procurement of the HS2 programme.
