Reverse Trade Fair Announced for Columbus – October 8
The Central Ohio Organization of Public Purchasers (CO-OPP) invites you to join us in Columbus on Wednesday, October 8th in improving the way government and business connect through the CO-OPP 2014 Reverse Trade Fair.
This is a wonderful opportunity for Ohio’s businesses to learn how to compete for state and local government contracts. Training by Ohio Procurement Technical Assistance Center* (PTAC) counselors and others will run concurrently with one-on-one buyer meetings.
What’s a Reverse Trade Fair? Representatives from local and regional government agencies will staff booths, and vendors interested in selling to government move from booth to booth describing their products and services, making new contacts and renewing existing relationships.
THIS IS AN EASY AND EXCELLENT WAY TO POTENTIALLY INCREASE YOUR SALES:
- No hassles, No booths to set up or tear down
- 20 state and local government agencies are already committed to the event with more on their way
- Great opportunity to meet and network with buyers and public procurement professionals
