The NIGP Forum is the largest North American conference exclusively for public procurement. The Forum is NIGP's showcase educational event, providing an ideal environment for networking with colleagues and suppliers, attending educational workshops led by subject matter experts in the field, and being motivated and inspired by professional speakers during general sessions.

Attendees can visit with nearly 200 suppliers during our products exposition on Monday and Tuesday, which provides the opportunity for one-on-one interaction and networking with suppliers. Receive real hands-on experience with the latest and greatest products and services available to the government during dedicated expo hours.

More than 60 specialized educational workshops and formal networking opportunities will be available to help you improve your skills, learn best practices, or provide a platform where you can gain support from colleagues on issues you face every day. The NIGP Forum is exclusive to the public procurement profession so you can be assured that educational sessions will relate specifically to public procurement issues. Professionals from all facets of the government will highly benefit from attending this event.
