City to Host 2016 Cooperative Purchasing Expo

The City of El Paso Purchasing and Strategic Sourcing Department will host the largest business networking opportunity in the Southwest, the 2016 Cooperative Purchasing Expo from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 30, at the Judson F. Williams Convention Center.

This is an opportunity for area businesses to grow their business by learning how they can participate in cooperative contracts used by governmental agencies across the country. Cooperative agreements provide vendors with the opportunity to have their goods and services sold in large quantities nationwide.

Participating government entities include Holloman Air Force Base, the County of El Paso, the State of Texas Department of Information Resources, US Communities, Region 19, various local school districts, and additional agencies.

These agencies will provide information on upcoming solicitations and purchasing forecasts.

Resource partners will be providing information on bonding, financing, state and federal certifications, and general information on how to do business with government agencies.

National Speakers Association Hall of Famer Walter Bond will be the keynote speaker. The Expo is free and open to the public.
