Through its sponsorships, NIGP offers a wealth of thought-leadership, speaking and product branding opportunities across the two formats: the in-person NIGP Forum in Boston and the virtual component with live streaming from Boston, pre-recorded content, and exclusive networking opportunities.

By investing in one or more of the following opportunities, suppliers in this market will increase their position, visibility, and brand with procurement officials from across the country and attract more visitors to their products and services.

NIGP Forum 2022 offers a much broader and larger way to connect with our community in the format in which THEY choose to engage with you. With NIGP Forum being one event, expanding into two different formats, suppliers can engage with an even larger audience of procurement officials than any previously held Forum. Forum 2022 is built to better position our supplier partners, establish deeper and more meaningful relationships with customers, generate strong leads which ultimately, leads to more sales.
