The German Vergabetag of the Deutschen Vergabenetzwerk (DVNW) brings public purchasers, employees in public procurement offices, representatives of the administration of justice, business, science and politics together on the current and important issues of public procurement.
In the week of the MEDICA trade fair (16 to 19 November) as well as on other selected data, contracting authorities can conduct free discussions with suppliers of innovative solutions and with buyers within the framework of a cooperation exchange. In addition, online events are organised.
The goal of this workshop is to inspire European, national, regional and local government officials and experts by presenting good practice case-studies on sustainable procurement, including green and social criteria.
