Connecting Procurement Communities

NIGP Forum

The flagship event for public procurement professionals to learn, network, and explore innovation in our field.

Every year we up the ante and strive to make NIGP Forum a better experience than the year before.  

Connect. Collaborate. Inspire.

At Forum like-minded public procurement professionals from across the country and Canada come together for best-of-class training and to share experiences, challenges, solutions, and best practices with a common goal - to be the best public servant they can be. They are bound by their commitment and passion for public procurement and look forward for this once-a-year opportunity to catch up with colleagues and/or make new meaningful connections.

The educational component of the conference covers the latest hot topics, best practices, resources, and skills needed to help improve job performance and provide professional development for public procurement professionals.  Attendees leave Forum, whether virtual or in-person, with a renewed energy for responsibly sourcing projects and a deeper understanding of the issues and challenges facing today's procurement professionals.

One of the primary benefits of attending Forum is the opportunity to meet suppliers, both virtually or in-person, from all over the United States and Canada that sell products in all areas of public procurement. Forum attendees can discover the latest products and services available to government agencies from a vast array of suppliers through our products exposition.
