HUB Vendor Fair Set for Dec. 14

HUB Vendor Fair

University of Houston-Downtown’s (UHD) Purchasing Department is hosting its 2018 Annual Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB) Vendor Fair from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday, Dec.14 in the Academic Building, Room A300.

State agencies and universities are constantly looking to work with businesses that are certified HUB. The goal of this good-faith effort is to actively involve HUBs in the Texas procurement process and ensure they receive a fair share of state business.

This event affords staff and faculty to meet and interact with vendors to hopefully increase business opportunities for these vendors at UHD.

Come by for a chance to win a prize!

For questions, contact Evelyn Paige.
