The EU UN-Procurement Seminar offers information about business opportunities with the UN Procurement market, and is intended for potential new suppliers from the EU-countries.

UN-representatives will provide an overview of their organization’s specific procurement process and how to successfully market goods and services to their organizations. A wide range of workshops will give companies insight on specific themes.

The workshops will further elaborate on the do’s and don’ts when dealing with UN-procurement. Finally, one-on-one meetings will be arranged with appropriate UN-buyers and decisions makers. This seminar is organized by the European Procurement Forum, a ‘not for profit’ to promote EU-companies to the UN.
