DC Buys: Reverse Vendor Trade Fair 2019 Office of Contracting and Procurement Friday, June 14, 2019 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

June 14, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


The DC Office of Contracting and Procurement (OCP) invites you to participate in the 5th Annual DC Buys Reverse Vendor Trade Fair on Friday, June 14, 2019 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM.

This event provides a unique opportunity for local and regional vendors to directly engage with District government program managers and procurement personnel. Vendors will have the opportunity to market goods and services, share capability statements, and learn of upcoming District government procurement opportunities directly from those representatives who ultimately make purchasing decisions on behalf of their specific District Government agencies.

Throughout the day, vendors will hear from District Government leaders, participate in informative workshops, and network with other vendors.

DC Buys 2019 is a prime opportunity to maximize your marketing efforts. If you are interested in doing business with the District, we encourage you to attend. No appointments. No driving to various locations. Just representatives from District agencies in a single room waiting to meet you!
