Followed by a presentation with local PTAC on how to prepare to do business with local, state and federal governments.

The roundtable/buyer-supplier meetings will follow a one-hour webinar. The roundtable will consist of a “doing business with” presentation from each buyer, to include a brief overview of your procurement process and supplier diversity initiatives. Each roundtable will be 20-minutes, with a buyer presentation and some time for questions, from up to 15 suppliers. The suppliers will stay put in their zoom room, and the buyers will be moved (by the MEDC event team) through each room every 20-minutes.
