Does your company make a product or provide a service?  Then you should consider attending the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce Procurement and Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) Meet the Buyer event on January 30, 2014.  The event is presented in partnership with the I-69 International Trade Corridor.  It takes place from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Riverfront Banquet Center in downtown Flint.

Purchasing agents representing public and private organizations from across the region will meet with potential vendors in a fast-paced, speed networking format.  Buyers will have 5 minutes to present their needs and then attendees will have 10 minutes to share the services or products that they provide and ask questions.  Both the buyer and the vendor benefit from the opportunity to learn about potential business connections.

To help companies maximize the Meet the Buyer experience, PTAC is also hosting a Pre-event Workshop.  The workshop takes place on Wednesday, January 22 in the Mott Boardroom at the Chamber offices at 519 S. Saginaw in downtown Flint from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  To register for the workshop contact Chelsea Schutz at (810) 600-1437 or
