Join us for

MPPOA's 13th Annual Reverse Trade Fair!

A Reverse Trade Fair (RTF) is an event that allows suppliers, contractors, and consultants the opportunity to meet with procurement professionals from around the state at one time. MPPOA members, procurement professionals from publicly funded agencies, staff the tables and vendors roam the floor to meet with entities; it's a win-win event for everyone involved.

MPPOA members win by having the opportunity to meet with a large variety of vendors in a single day, in a setting free of interruptions.

Vendors win by having a cost-effective way to meet with numerous agencies from around the state in a single place during a single day.

No vendor booth required!
