The Governor’s Office and the State of Oregon have made it a priority to create equity in contracting and procurement. We are excited to announce the Governor’s Marketplace will take place on March 23, 2017.

The Governor’s Marketplace brings together industry professionals, public and private organizations, diversity practitioners and small businesses to build valuable relationships. Small businesses will learn about opportunities and local resources available.

The reverse vendor exhibitor fair will provide state agencies with the opportunity to showcase contracting opportunities with small businesses throughout Oregon. You will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with local entrepreneurs who are interested in learning how to do business with the state and where to find opportunities within your organization.
