As work for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games moves towards the end of the initial construction phase, businesses within the region are presented with a whole host of new supply chain opportunities such as the catering, waste and cleaning contracts.

As well as being adjacent to the Olympic Park Site, the East of England is the host for two Olympic events – the mountain biking at Hadleigh Farm in Essex and the White Water Canoeing Centre at Broxbourne.
As the Games get ever closer, businesses in the region continue to take full advantage of the opportunities in the build-up to London 2012. There are over 75,000 contracts to be won, everything from the construction of world-class stadia to the provision of ice creams.
The majority of contracts will be advertised via the CompeteFor website – an online ‘dating agency’, funded by EEDA, that matches a business’ services and products with suitable contract opportunities.
Over 11,000 businesses in this region have already registered on the CompeteFor portal. To make sure you’re business is in the starting blocks, visit www.competefor.com.
