Town to participate in Reverse Trade Show

The town of Queen Creek will join government agencies from across the East Valley in the Third Annual Reverse Trade Show March 20 in an attempt to learn more about products and services that may be procured from local businesses.

Hosted by the Grand Canyon and Arizona State Capitol Chapters of NIGP: The Institute for Public Procurement, the city of Mesa and the Mesa Chamber of Commerce, the event invites local businesses to present their goods and services directly to buyers representing cities, counties state agencies and school districts.

The event will take place 1-4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 20, at the Mesa Convention Center, 201 N. Center St., Building C in Mesa. Registration is required and is available online.

The cost is $10 per attendee if paid in advance, $15 per person at the door. Included in the event are breakout sessions with procurement staff from various agencies throughout Arizona, including cities, schools, counties and state agencies.
