Forum 2021 Registration Now Open! Register Early & Save
From NIGP: We know many of you have been wondering and anxiously awaiting to hear what our plans are for Forum this year. Wait no more. NIGP Forum 2021 is coming.
As our largest and most iconic annual event that’s all about connecting procurement communities, we know Forum holds a special place in the hearts and minds of our members and suppliers alike. The past year has been one of great change and disruption to our norms, but it’s also been a year of great resilience and hope. Through it all, while you have been focused on serving the public with fortitude, our staff has been focused on meeting the dynamic needs of our members to weather this crisis. We’ve been working diligently to bring you an unforgettable Forum experience that will take NIGP, and our profession, to soaring new heights.
NIGP Forum 2021 offers a wholly new way for members to connect, engage, honor, and celebrate our collective accomplishments. We kick-off Forum with an all-virtual experience in August that’s for everyone. The experience continues in September, for a smaller group of procurement thought leaders, with a socially distanced in-person gathering in sunny Anaheim for our first-ever Leadership Summit.
The Forum virtual event is a mix of live and pre-recorded sessions for you to hear inspiring speakers, attend thought-provoking educational sessions, engage in agency and topic-based networking, connect with suppliers, and of course to have some fun and celebrate.

Our new Leadership Summit is like no other event hosted by NIGP and yet another innovative offering that elevates our great profession. This inaugural meeting of the minds is designed to bring together procurement’s most ardent advocates and innovative thought leaders for three days of transformative thinking and high-impact collaboration. It’s equal parts inspiration and perspiration with attendees expected to fully engage in productive dialogue and roll-up-your-sleeves working sessions. You will have a space to share your stories and learn lessons from others. You will engage in deep-dives on your entity’s values, strategy, and how to execute, and walk away with actionable plans and clear next steps. You will have in-depth discussions on the most pressing challenges procurement leaders are grappling with and uncover the most salient solutions collectively. And finally, you will identify the key drivers and forecast the most important trends for public procurement to plan for the future proactively and strategically.
What’s more, with your Leadership Summit registration you get full access to the virtual experience. This incredible value lets you earn up to 34 contact hours for one low price.
