National Association of State Procurement Officials 2014 How to Market to State Governments Meeting
The NASPO How to Market to State Governments Meeting will take place March 16-18, 2014 in San Diego, California and will provide a unique opportunity for private-sector representatives to network with state procurement officials. First, pre-scheduled, one-on-one partnering sessions with state procurement officials offer the face time necessary for suppliers to explain new products, answer questions and set the stage for a working relationship with the states.
Second, attendees have access to an educational program that allows state procurement officials to get feedback from suppliers on improving the procurement process and gives suppliers an inside look at how to do better business with the states. There are even sessions specifically for small and minority-owned business, offering a great opportunity to meet state purchasing officials from all over the country and network with larger companies.
Finally, networking breakfasts, lunches and evening events give everyone more time to build on the relationships and information they've heard throughout the day. All of this comes together in this one event to provide a wealth of benefits for everyone who attends!
