Event format

Presentation followed by Q&A and discussion (watch, learn then interact)


The public sector across the UK, from hospitals and schools to central government, police forces and universities, spends about £290 billion a year through public procurement.

Does your company want to sell British made products to government and public entities in the UK, be it the NHS, Department for Education, Ministry of Defence, Department for Transport, Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government, a devolved or local government, or another public entity?

If so then join Made in Britain for this session on ‘how to do more business with government in the UK’.  Made in Britain’s Advisor on Government and International Trade, George Middleton, will be joined by government procurement specialist Lloyd Johnson at Tussell to speak exclusively to Made in Britain members.

Founded in 2015, Tussell is the authoritative data and intelligence source on UK public sector procurement. Through its market intelligence platform, Tussell helps leading government suppliers and public bodies gain insights into public spending and contracting.

Made in Britain’s aim is to support Made in Britain members sell more of what they make.  This online session is the latest in an ongoing programme of government procurement activities and communications delivered by Made in Britain.  Recent activity has included sessions with Leidos and NHS Supply Chain.

Who is the session designed for?

All Made in Britain members, whether you currently supply to government / the public sector in the UK or not.
