Meet the Buyer with RAF Lakenheath is our keynote seminar taking place at next week’s Two Counties Business Exhibition at IWM Duxford.

Paul Mayes, Flight Chief for 48th Contracting Squadron at RAF Lakenheath, will explain the registration process of how your company can bid on contract opportunities with RAF Lakenheath.

The 48th Contracting Squadron provide acquisition solutions to enable global combat air power and support operations for units based in the United Kingdom. 48 CONS currently manages a £145 million portfolio spanning a broad spectrum of market segments, future opportunities including UK-wide grounds maintenance, solid waste management, medical services, various general construction projects as well as opportunities for personnel to provide management and professional services, studies, analyses, evaluations, engineering and technical expertise.

Paul Mayes commented:

The majority of the work available is located at RAF Lakenheath and RAF Mildenhall but there are also UK wide contracts for services across 12 other RAF locations within the UK. I look forward to speaking to businesses during the seminar and also at our exhibition stand.

This one-day event will showcase over 80 companies from a range of sectors across Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, bringing hundreds of visitors to take advantage of special offers, free speed networking and a seminar offering tips to take away to help grow your business.

In addition to the exhibition, you will have access into AirSpace to explore over 30 iconic aircraft, view the newly refurbished Conference Centre, have a go on IWM Duxford Spitfire Virtual Reality experience, gain a unique viewing of Concorde nose droop and access onto this iconic aircraft, plus get a free ride on the IWM Duxford simulator.

Bonnie Taylor Development Manager at IWM Duxford, commented:

We are really looking forward to showcasing IWM Duxford as part of the Two Counties Business Exhibition. There will be so many unique and memorable experiences for the visitors of the exhibition including going on board the iconic Concorde in AirSpace and watching a nose droop display, have a go on our Spitfire virtual reality experience or flight simulator or even take a photo next to a real Spitfire – it’s a unique opportunity to combine a business opportunity next to a unique experience.
