Why the name change?
After careful consideration, the NASPO Board of Directors selected the new name to better reflect the core values and purpose of the conference. The 2017 NASPO Exchange is designed to build relationships among the supplier community and state governments, the largest consumers of goods and services in the country. The meeting is a place where partnering, networking and learning come together to develop business relationships to support public procurements that are effective, efficient, transparent and fair.
What’s NEW at the 2017 NASPO Exchange?
The new brand brings a renewed focus on the core values and purpose of the conference. New elements have all been designed to enhance these features, including collaborative education sessions to enhance mutual understanding of needs in the procurement process, new approaches to roundtable discussions and education “tracks” to target session participation.
