PORTSMOUTH City Council has joined a list of public authorities taking part in a business event tomorrow.

New Eastleigh MP Mike Thornton will welcome visitors to South Hampshire Meet the Buyer at the Ageas Bowl in Hedge End.

Last year’s event generated deals worth around £6.25m for the county.

Denise Barlow, head of communication and marketing at event organiser Hampshire Chamber of Commerce, said: ‘We already have a record number of private sector buyers attending, 22 as opposed to 18 last year.

‘On the public sector side, we’re delighted that Portsmouth City Council has joined the list of local authorities taking part.

‘This is a fantastic opportunity for suppliers to promote their goods, products and services to major organisations, both public and private, that operate in and around the region.’
