Event description

Description

Are you a commodity supplier and interested in doing business with the City of LA?!

If so, the City of Los Angeles' Department of General Services is hosting its annual commodity Vendor Fair! We were excited to have over 400 vendors participate in this event last year and we are looking to build off our success. This year we will have an improved layout that includes having vendors display their commodities on the City Hall South Lawn AND on Main Street to create one large and cohesive street fair. As an added bonus, we will be closing down Main Street so that attendees can easily access the City Hall Farmer's Market across the street!

All current and potential vendors are welcome to attend this event because there is something for everyone! For our existing vendors, you can meet with our Procurement experts, network with City end-users, participate in possible matchmaking opportunities and more! For potential vendors, you will be able to attend a class on how to start doing business with the City of LA, discuss with the City's commodity buyers about upcoming opportunities to bid on, network with current suppliers and City staff, along with other activities!

Some of the activities for all vendors in attendance include:

  • Participate in business matchmaking events;

  • Receive your Business Tax Registration Certificate (BTRC) number or get your business certified with on-site certification available;

  • Meet with the City's Procurement Analysts and learn about upcoming business opportunities;

  • Attend educational classes on how to do business with the City or how to navigate and submitt bids on the new Vendor Self-Service (VSS) site (reserve your ticket below!);

  • Register on-site for the City's VSS site and Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network (LABAVN) (this will let the City's bidding opportunities come to you);

  • Learn how to go paperless and conveniently bid using our new online portal, VSS;

  • Network with various businesses, City end-users, members of the public, and others;

  • And much more!
