Our goal is to enable more and more UK SMEs to connect to new opportunities for growth locally, nationally and internationally. Through the Heathrow Business Summit we are working to connect SMEs with each other, with the airport, and, through the airport, to the world. In 2018, Heathrow will host a series of Heathrow Business Summits across the UK, including Yorkshire. These events provide a unique opportunity for SMEs to connect and trade face to face with other SMEs, Heathrow's supply chain and in partnership with the Department for International Trade, explore exporting opportunities. The airport spends up to £1.5bn annually with more than 1,400 suppliers from around the UK and there will be more work on the horizon with expansion.
