Olympic Games Business Opportunity Extends Beyond London and 2012 says Lloyds TSB
By Lloyds TSB Commercial
With less than a year to go until the first event, companies could be forgiven for thinking that the chance to secure business relating to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games had passed.
While many large, direct contracts have already been awarded, the official tendering website CompeteFor – www.competefor.com – still has details and contacts to help small businesses tap into a wider pool of contracts further down the supply chain.
Wherever your company is based, you can still get involved as latest figures show that there are many contracts still to be awarded.
If you look at the Olympic Delivery Authority’s (ODA) own map of suppliers at the www.london2012.com site you will see businesses across the UK are already involved.
Hopefully many of these relationships will endure way beyond 2012 and form part of a business legacy created by the Games.
At a time when securing new business is a priority for so many small businesses, registering is a simple step in a strategy towards widening your network and getting your name and offering in front of a far larger audience.
One in three companies which has secured a contract is a customer of Lloyds Banking Group and we have tapped into this fantastic pool of experience to help you craft your own bids with the guidance of someone who has been successful.
As an official partner of the London 2012 Games, and with our nationwide network of business relationship managers, Lloyds TSB Commercial can offer our customers support and guidance in competing for London 2012 contracts, and Lloyds Banking Group have made £1 billion available to firms for this purpose.
For instance, you may need finance such as a loan to invest in your business or help to buy additional raw material to increase your product output in advance of a London 2012 related surge in demand.
Whatever guidance you need, we have a range of solutions, from overdrafts to invoice finance, to help you win a contract in advance of 2012.
