Connecting Procurement Communities

NIGP Annual Forum and 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.
