Bids for tenders through the Expo portal website

The Expo has set up an online portal for companies to submit bids for tenders.

This process is accessible to SMEs as well as larger companies. Therefore, registration is kept as simple as possible.

Until now 31% of tenders have been awarded to SMEs. The online portal offers opportunities for companies from around the world. Since April 2015, 122 projects have been awarded for a total amount of US$ 380 million. At present this means about 30-35 tenders are published per month. By 2018, this will amount to more than 100 per month. Plenty of opportunities for Dutch companies in the years to come!
