    ROUND TABLE 
    with
    Procurement Decision Markers (PDM) and BUYER'S ONLY

    The intent of this registration is to secure all participating PDMs and buyers so they can indicate what they are looking for so that a vendor can determine if they have the products and services and set an appointment with the buyer after confirming there is a match.

    The PDM and buyer registrant is asked to indicate a web link and products and codes so the vendor can research and ensure an appointment is made and matched.

    The format will be a round table with a PDM and 3 suppliers. The PDM will listen to 3 vendors during a 20 minute session with a 5 minute rotation. The PDM will afford all 3 vendors to speak equaling within the 20 minute period. The schedule will be as follows. If you don't secure a full table, do PLEASE pick time slots opened in tables noted below:
