DeKalb to Host Business Opportunity Reverse Trade Show and Procurement Summit

DECATUR, Ga. – In celebration of National Procurement Month, DeKalb County is set to host its third annual Business Opportunity Reverse Trade Show and Procurement Summit. The free event is from 9 a.m. to noon on Thursday, March 28, at the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts & Community Center, 3181 Rainbow Drive, in Decatur.

The DeKalb County Purchasing and Contracting Department encourages current and prospective vendors and the general public to take advantage of this opportunity to learn how to do business with the county.

Participants will have the chance to market their services directly to department representatives and talk with procurement staff.
