17 May 2021 Ross Watson

Businesses across West Yorkshire are being invited to help breathe life into Bradford’s new entertainment venue, as the next stage of a historic regeneration project gets underway.

From IT to facility management, food and beverage to printing, businesses in the local area are being invited by the team at Bradford Live to be a part of this ambitious project.

The venue is prioritising the local and regional market for suppliers from all sectors and is set to host a supplier day in mid-September, offering nearby companies the chance to meet with Bradford Live’s operating team.

Operated by the UK’s leading live events business, the NEC Group, the venue hopes to welcome 300,000 visitors each year to a host of events when it opens late 2022.

The supplier day will be co-hosted by NEC Group’s Food and Beverage Director Marc Frankl and Director of Partnerships and Media, Chris Pile. They said: “The next stage of the Bradford Live project is now underway as we search for local companies to help shape the future of the venue.

“We are so excited to take the next step in regenerating this landmark and we want businesses that feel they can add to the project, to get in touch and join us on the journey. This is an open call, no matter what your specialism, whether you are a potential supplier, sponsor or future contractor we want to hear from you.”

Keighley-based contractor RN Wooler & Co Ltd was recently appointed as the main contractor for the project.

Creating around 50 full time equivalent positions upon completion, as well as a further 60 temporary construction jobs, Bradford Live is set celebrate the city and venue’s heritage, while ensuring world-class event spaces for generations to come.
