Schedule-at-a-Glance

NIGP Forum offers you many avenues to get connected, to learn, share grow and accelerate how you accomplish your goals. In 2021, NIGP Forum is offered as a wholly unique experience. We kick things off in August in an all-virtual setting, helping more procurement professionals learn and engage from wherever they are.

The Forum virtual experience is a four-day conference offering a mix of live and pre-recorded sessions, expo hours, networking and social events.
