Together we can achieve more, learn more, engage more.

Forum - The largest educational conference exclusively for public procurement in North America where peers share ideas, engage and inspire one another, develop strong connections and gain a better understanding of how to tackle challenges they face along the way. It's an opportunity to come together and rethink status quo, make ideas happen and leave empowered, ready to put these new ideas into practice and add value to your agencies.

Together we can explore innovative ways to procure goods and services for our communities.

Whether you are new to the profession or a seasoned veteran, there is always knowledge to gain. Forum has over 70 workshop sessions with compelling content on Construction, Emergency Management/Disaster Planning, Cornerstones of Procurement, Case Studies and Technology. There's also inspiring key note speakers, networking activities and a products expo with over 245 suppliers showcasing the latest government products and services. The value you gain personally as well as professionally is priceless.

Together we can save taxpayer dollars by procuring wisely.

Join us in Austin, the capital of Texas, for a thought-provoking public procurement experience you will never forget.
