We help entrepreneurs and businesses start, grow and prosper through street-smart business education and assistance
The Advance Colorado Procurement Expo, now in its 10th year, is Colorado’s premier buyers and sellers marketplace! Every year, businesses are invited to participate in this day-long event, which focuses on state and local government procurement. Businesses (sellers) exhibit throughout the day to showcase their goods and services to local and state government agencies (buyers). Exhibitors are able to meet with procurement professionals from those agencies to learn how to best sell their goods and services to them. All businesses, including those owned by women, minorities and veterans, are encouraged to participate. In addition to the expo hall, training sessions are held in the afternoon on the topics of government procurement. There is also a keynote speaker during lunch, as well as engaging one-on-one sessions between buyers and sellers (by appointment only). There is no cost for government agencies (buyers) to participate. Businesses may purchase an exhibitor table or a general admission ticket. Spaces are limited and early registration is encouraged, as this event does sell out!
This event is proudly brought to you by the Minority Business Office of Colorado, State Purchasing & Contracts Office, Colorado Department of Transportation and the Colorado Business Development Foundation.
