Opening Doors: Reverse Trade Show

Here is what participants had to say:

Procurement professionals from over 40 medium to large companies/institutions along with federal, state and local government met with local business on June13, 2013 to share guidelines on what it takes to become a qualified supplier. 


The Chamber’s Opening Doors – Reverse Trade Show provides small business the opportunity to meet directly with procurement representatives to build a relationship that otherwise might take years to develop.  Understand their procurement needs, such as materials, equipment, and professional services and what it takes to do business with them. 


Here is what participants had to say:
