Frequently asked questions

Who can attend?

Any company. However priority will be given to suppliers located within the boroughs of Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, and Trafford.

When will I find out what workshops are available?

Keep an eye out on our Workshops page. We will update this over the coming weeks as more sessions are confirmed. You can book on as many sessions as you like.

What if I am unable to attend a workshop?

We will be recording the workshops, so if you are unable to attend, please let us know and we will send you a link to the recroding. We want as many people to attend the workshops as possible to ensure they are interactive and to make sure you get the most out of them.

Can I set up a private meeting with a purchaser?

The STAR Category Managers will provide updates on their category areas as well as opportunities for questions and answers at the end of certain workshops. If you would like an individual discussion you can contact the Category Manager direct.

Can I meet with a purchaser face to face?

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 restrictions we are not having a physical event this year, and are keeping face to face meetings to a minimum, and only where absolutly essential. The STAR team are all working from home and have the technology in place to have a video call with you. You can contact the Category Manager direct.
