Event Details

About the event:

Join us for our fourth annual DFW Business Opportunity Fair, hosted by public agencies in Tarrant County!




Local agencies are collaboratively hosting this Business Opportunity Vendor Fair at one centralized location to make it easy for area businesses to scope out local opportunities.


All small businesses, minority-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, historical underutilized businesses, or disadvantaged business enterprises are encouraged to attend. Participants will get the opportunity to meet contract decision-makers from different businesses throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area, as well as attend workshops, participate in one-on-one interviews with buyers, network with colleagues, and learn about both current and upcoming bid opportunities.
