Purchasing services to host two-day supplier fair

Purchasing services is hosting the Preferred Supplier/Supplier Diversity Fair 2003.

The two-day event will be April 30 at the Eric P. Newman Education Center on the Medical Campus and May 1 at the Athletic Complex Field House. The fair runs from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. each day.

The event represents an opportunity for departmental personnel and others involved in purchasing decisions to meet and interact with some of the University’s preferred contract suppliers, including several minority business enterprises.

This year’s attendees can register to participate in one or more of several educational sessions that will be set up at each location relating to the themes of the exhibits that day.

Between 40-45 suppliers are scheduled to exhibit at each show.
