Simon Carr, managing director at Henry Boot Construction and LEP board member, said: “The LEP is working with HS2 to help make sure that local businesses are able to compete to be part of the supply chain for one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Europe.

“This event offers local businesses the chance to get ready for the wide-ranging opportunities which will be created by this massive project.

“This event will be an excellent opportunity for local businesses to find out more about HS2’s procurement strategy and speak to the HS2 Ltd team face-to-face.”

HS2 commercial director Beth West said: “HS2 offers this country a much-needed chance to re-balance the economy, support hundreds of thousands of jobs and develop our national skills base.”

The HS2 Ltd Seminar will take place at the AMP Technology Centre in Rotherham tomorrow from 10am to 12.30pm.
