Are you interested in learning how to sell your products or services to the government? If so, this is a MUST attend event for you. Purchasing agents from the State of Michigan, Wayne County and local municipalities will be on hand to meet with you.
Pure Michigan Business Connect (PMBC) is partnering with Wayne County Economic Development to host this event and have lined up a great list of potential new business opportunities for you. Below is a partial list of who will be at this Meet the Buyer Event:
State of Michigan, Wayne County, SMART, MDOT, City of Detroit, Great Lakes Water Authority, Wayne County Airport Authority, City of Dearborn, City of Livonia, City of Romulus, and the Detroit Water Authority.
You will learn the process of doing business with each government unit, how to apply for and get notified of RFP/RFB's, and what the thresholds are for micro-purchasing opportunities.
