On February 26th Procurement Services successfully hosted the first UMW Supplier Expo. With dozens of vendors in attendance, the event radiated a lively and progressive atmosphere. Faculty, staff, and associates of the university had the chance to chat one-on-one with some of our most essential contacts while also receiving some promotional products to take home. This opportunity to connect with our dynamic networks both strengthened and broadened the bond within our supplier community. The department has been receiving many positive responses, and it has been voiced that another Expo in the future would be highly anticipated. Our team is appreciative of all of the vendors that participated in our inaugural event, as well as for those who came to see what we had to offer.
