2018 United Nations Procurement Day

Thursday, August 23 2018 at 7:30am - 3:00pm

PMBC is hosting its first-ever 2018 United Nations Procurement Day, providing the UN and its affiliate organizations the opportunity to identify suppliers for immediate opportunities across several industries including Aerospace, Agriculture, Automotive, Construction, Defense, Engineering, Healthcare and many more. The UN and its affiliates annually spend approximately $18 billion globally, with more than $3 billion occurring in the United States with qualified and capable suppliers. This opportunity represents a significant opportunity for Michigan companies to explore opportunities to supply the UN global network.

Suppliers will hear from the top four UN procuring organizations – the UN Procurement Division, the UN Development Programme, UNICEF and the World Food Programme – who will discuss how to find and do business with their organizations. In addition, suppliers will have an opportunity to:

– Become a registered vendor in the United Nations Global Marketplace (UNGM), for consideration of ongoing and future procurement opportunities.
– Meet with resource partners including the US Commercial Service, the SBA, PTAC and the MEDC International Trade team to learn about global exporting, logistics and other business services available to their companies.

If selected, suppliers will participate in 1:1 meetings with UN procurement teams to discuss immediate opportunities.

The summit will feature an educational morning session with presentations from the four participating UN affiliates, with an afternoon of meetings based on the commodity areas represented in the supplier application. The collective objective for this collaboration will be new bid opportunities and new contracts for Michigan companies.

The 2018 UN Procurement Day will take place on August 23rd, 2018 at the GEM Theatre in Detroit, Michigan.
