Small Business and Strategic Partner Vendor Fair

The Purchasing Department strives to continue to build new and strong business relationships between UNM departments and local small businesses.

The purpose of the Vendor Fair is to provide an opportunity for local small businesses to network with departments of the UNM Main and Branch campuses as well as the UNM Health Science Center with the intent of entering into new business partnerships. The Vendor Fair also provides our Strategic Partners presently conducting business with UNM and UNMHSC the opportunity to reaffirm and reinforce their current business relationships. Other agencies are also present at the event that may have contracting opportunities available within their organizations.

Since it's introduction in 2013, this annual networking event allows both vendors and departments to establish advantageous business relationships with new and current suppliers.
