Supply Ontario Reverse Trade Show

Since April 2009, the Ministry of Government & Consumer Services has hosted reverse trade shows introducing business owners to buyers and representatives from Ontario ministries, agencies, academic organizations, the healthcare sector and municipalities.

The purpose of Supply Ontario is to provide vendors information on the upcoming needs of government organizations and to allow the government organizations to learn from vendors about new products or service abilities that may fit their future needs.

This is a unique opportunity for business owners seeking to learn how to sell to the provincial government.  There is not other venue where they get to meet government buyers face to face.

A seminar on "How to do business with the Ontario Government" is planned for 2:00 pm in the theatre adjacent to the trade show room.

Information sessions on more specific procurement topics will be held concurrently with the reverse trade show which opens at 3:00 pm
