The Forum and Supplier Connect/Equipment Showcase, held each year in November, is Virginia’s largest event for public procurement professionals and supplier partners.

In 2016, the event was re-branded from the Supplier Expo to “SUPPLIER CONNECT”.  We want to ensure Virginia’s procurement professionals are “connecting” with our supply base to discover how product and services can be provided to “meet the needs” of Virginia in innovative ways!  

NEW in 2016, the EQUIPMENT SHOWCASE was added for those suppliers who provide motorized equipment to Virginia’s procurement professionals.  The Equipment Showcase enables our internal customers to inspect the larger equipment, with a supplier representative onsite to answer any questions.  Examples of equipment include school buses, ambulances, construction, lawn maintenance, utility vehicles, fleet vehicles, law enforcement vehicles, and lots more!
