The Oregon Public Purchasing Association (OPPA) and the Columbia Chapter of the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) are proud and excited to present to you the 11th Annual Reverse Vendor Trade Show, to be held October 19, 2016 at the Columbia Conference Center of the Portland Airport Holiday Inn.
WHAT’S A REVERSE VENDOR TRADE SHOW? – It’s the opposite of a regular trade show. Government agents who work in the purchasing departments will staff their booths with information to share, and vendors interested in selling to governmental agencies move from booth to booth visiting the agency staff members.
•Showcase your products and services.
•Make new and important contacts with government buyers.
•Renew existing relationships.
•All in one place, on one day.
VENDORS DO NOT EXHIBIT – This is your once a year opportunity to meet face-to-face with public purchasing professionals from throughout Oregon, all in one place at one time! Best of all, no booths to set up, no materials to load and unload. Government procurement specialists staff their booths, and you move from booth to booth making new contacts and showcasing your products and services. SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE!
SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES – Make a lasting impression on government buyers and INCREASE YOUR VISIBILITY AT THE EVENT. We have a sponsorship opportunity to meet every budget requirement. Sponsorships are limited so secure yours now!
PANEL DISCUSSION – Breakout sessions where vendors and public procurement professionals conduct Q&A sessions.
•1-2pm: Facilities/Trade Services
EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION AVAILABLE THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30th.
