City of Tucson Supplier Diversity Initiative

El Pueblo Business Expo is part of the City of Tucson’s Supplier Diversity Initiative to help grow the local economy by introducing networking events where small local suppliers have the opportunity to meet our community’s large institutions.  This expo will create a space, free of any charges, where local small businesses can discuss procurement processes and requirements with large employers, and by doing so create new contract opportunities.
