Publish Date

King County, Port of Seattle, City of Seattle, Washington State Department of Transportation and Department of General Administration, U.S. General Services Administration, University of Washington and Sound Transit host this annual event in collaboration with other public agencies.

The Puget Sound region's largest public agencies will host a Regional Contracting Forum on March 30 at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle. Each year, more than 1,000 people attend this annual networking and information-gathering event. This year the Forum will include one-on-one interactive sessions between prime and subcontractors for construction and architectural and engineering services, and agency buyers and vendors. The Forum also serves as a "one-stop" location for business owners seeking to do business with government agencies to ask questions that will help them navigate the public competitive bidding process successfully.

The Regional Contracting Forum is a source of useful information for contractors, vendors, and suppliers who want to learn about upcoming contracting opportunities in construction, consulting, and goods and services of government entities throughout the Puget Sound region. Business owners can network with other businesses, and visit resource agency representatives who will be available to share information on resources and technical assistance available to help small businesses, many at no cost.

The Regional Contracting Forum will take place from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 30 at a new venue, the Washington State Convention and Trade Center, located in downtown Seattle on the corner of 7th and Pike streets. To register online, visit: http://www.kingcounty.gov/contractforum.
