On the 11th of June 2018, Tenderio organised the workshop “Tenderio Training, Matching & Business-to-Procurers Day“, in Lisbon!
The location was provided by IAPMEI, in the wonderful technologic park “Campus do Lumiar”.

The event was focused on both promoting Tenderio free services and on informing participants on the ways they can succeed in bidding abroad.
Indeed, the Agenda of the event tackled progressively the greatest initial barriers SMEs encounter when bidding abroad, from channels to find local partners to translation services, from the explanantion of standard award criteria to hints on how to effectvely draft the bid.

Personal consultations were organised at the end of the event.
The engagement and interest of participants in the matter, showcased by their proactive questioning, led to an informal and fruitful environment during the event and especially during personal consultations.

Here was the Agenda:
