Preferred Vendor Expo

The Vendor Expo is the only on-campus event that specifically promotes our Preferred Vendors and presents the most meaningful opportunities to connect with our campus community. This event provides vendors the chance to share information and ideas on products and services provided, showcase new offerings, establish buyer relationships and strengthen existing ones.

Hundreds of faculty and staff attend our Vendor Expo, creating the perfect place for vendors and Northwestern end-users to meet one-on-one to exchange ideas and discuss solutions.
