The Common Procurement Activities Group (CPAG)
, which membership consists of 19 Geneva-based UN entities and other international organizations, cordially invites you to a special procurement event in Geneva, hosted by the United Nations Office at Geneva.

The main purpose of the CPAG business seminar is to inform potential vendors and trade entities about CPAG’s procurement activities. The seminar, to which all interested entities are encouraged to participate, will provide information on procurement procedures, practical tips as well as information on how to identify business opportunities.

Vendors that attend the morning session, will also have the opportunity to meet CPAG Members during a networking session or in one-on-one meetings in the afternoon. One-on-one meetings can be requested by registering to this event by 19 October 2018 at the latest and will be subject to confirmation by CPAG Members based on the relevance of the vendor’s business area. Vendors can also receive support to register with the United Nations Global Marketplace at our UNGM Live Support booth as well as ask procurement experts specific questions related to tenders at our Tendering Tips Helpdesk. The event will be conducted in English.
