31st Annual Government Procurement Conference (GPC)


Due to continued in-person capacity restrictions for government employees as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be moving the October 27, 2021 GPC event to April 2022 TBA.

The success of our Annual Conference depends significantly on the participation level of federal, state and local Government agencies. These groups aren’t able to participate at the necessary level to make the GPC event what it normally would be. We are working on confirming the April date and will send out an update in the next couple of weeks.

Tips to Help Make the Most of This Conference

  • Do your homework! Review the Procurement Opportunities page to identify your target agencies and learn as much as you can about what the agencies purchase and how.
  • Be sure your registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) is current. The System for Award Management (SAM) is the Official U.S. Government system that consolidated the capabilities of CCR/FedReg, ORCA and EPLS. There is NO fee to register for this site. Entities may register at no cost directly from this page.
  • Have a clear, concise capability statement that includes business type (socio-economic status), NAIC codes and a description of your products and services. This should either be on a 1-page document, available on a url that you distribute or through a QR code.
  • View the exhibit listing and map out your day. This is updated daily as new agencies and businesses register.
  • Check out the agenda on-line. It will be updated with speakers and abstracts as they become available.
  • Stay up to date with Social Networking:
