Connecting Procurement Communities

Annual Forum & Products Exposition

The Annual Forum from NIGP is the largest North American educational conference designed exclusively for individuals in public procurement.

Connect. Collaborate. Inspire. At Forum like-minded public procurement professionals from across the country and Canada come together for best-of-class training and to share experiences, challenges, solutions, and best practices with a common goal - to be the best public servant they can be. They are bound by their commitment and passion for public procurement and look forward for this once-a-year opportunity to catch up with colleagues and/or make new meaningful connections.

NIGP Forum engages attendees from all regions, roles, and specialties who serve public sector agencies and organizations representing: 

  • Utilities
  • Universities
  • K–12 education
  • Federal government
  • Health and nonprofit
  • States and provinces

  • Cities, towns, and villages

The educational component of the conference covers the latest hot topics, best practices, resources, and skills needed to help improve job performance and provide professional development for public procurement professionals. Attendees leave Forum with a renewed energy for responsibly sourcing projects and a deeper understanding of the issues and challenges facing today's procurement professionals.

Products Exposition

One of the primary benefits of attending Forum is the opportunity to meet suppliers from all over the United States and Canada that sell products in all areas of public procurement. Forum attendees can discover the latest products and services available to government agencies from a vast array of suppliers through our products exposition.

If you are a supplier that sells supplies to government agencies, you don't miss the opportunity to be a Forum exhibitor.
