Attention Vendors, Suppliers, and Contractors:

IF YOU SELL TO GOVERNMENT AGENCIES - OR IF YOU WANT TO - THIS IS A MUST-ATTEND EVENT!

This is a once in a year opportunity to meet face-to-face with public procurement professionals from all throughout Idaho and other nearby areas, all in one place at one time!

The Reverse Vendor Trade Show is a unique event that encourages vendors to meet and talk directly to procurement officials - they staff the booths and you move from booth to booth making new contacts or building current ones by showcasing your products and services. In return, the public procurement representatives provide valuable information about how to do business with their agency.

Best of all, you won't have a booth to set up or materials to load and unload.  Just bring lots of business cards and brochures to distribute! 

Why should you attend?

Introduce your business to procurement representatives from federal, state, and local  government agencies. You will also have the chance to learn about their procurement needs, such as materials, equipment, and professional services and what it takes to do business with them.

Connect with other participants to build relationships and potential business partners.

Stay for a buffet lunch to make additional connections and gain insights from IPPA about the industry trends and business opportunities as well as hear from our keynote speaker, Troy McClain. 

We are so excited our 6th Annual Reverse Trade Show is scheduled for November 9, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Jack's Urban Meeting Place (JUMP) this year!  We hope to see you there!
