November 3-4, 2011 | UN Procurement Seminar, New York
Business Opportunities at the United Nations
Date: November 3-4, 2011

As the worldwide biggest buyer, the United Nations (UN) procured goods and services in the amount of almost US$ 14 billion in 2009.
Unaffected by the economic situation, the UN procurement volume more than doubled in the past five years.
As German suppliers are still under-represented, use this opportunity to learn more about UN procurement directly at the United Nation's main location in New York.
Furthermore, during the seminar, you will have the unique chance for one-on-one meetings with UN buyers. Please register by September 30, 2011 to be considered for these meetings.
This seminar is organized particularly for German companies. It is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.
