Supplier Forum banner

CAMSC’s Supplier Forum is a new initiative that is being launched on February 16th to support CAMSC’s certified suppliers, connect, learn, and share best practices.

One of the most frequent questions that get asked is “How do we gain visibility with Corporate members or government?”

Do you feel like your organization is going unnoticed by Canada’s largest corporations? In our first ever supplier forum, successful suppliers share their best practices that they have utilized to make themselves Visible to Canada’s Procurement Opportunities.

The Supplier Forum panelists will lead educational and informative conversations by taking you through real-life case studies and answering your questions in a live Q&A.

The panelists represent suppliers of various backgrounds, experience, and have proven success connecting to corporate Canada as well as corporate members who share their insights into some of their supplier success stories.
