Enterprise Sponsor Program

Your opportunity to join a select group of companies who serve as advisors and educators to our members on industry trends.

NIGP’s Enterprise Sponsor Program is an all-in-one, single-tier, exclusive sponsorship for corporations that recognize the public good that can be achieved through alignment with the foremost authority in public procurement, its professional community and like-minded organizations. Unlike most sponsorship programs, NIGP’s is holistic in scope – we offer only one ‘tier’ of sponsorship with recognition across key programs, no one-off up-selling or event-specific sponsorships, and a competitor-free program environment. With a limited number of sponsorship slots in the program, your company will enjoy sustained high visibility recognition across NIGP programs as well as a seat on the NIGP Business Council, an advisory committee who serve educators to our membership about issues and ideas from the supplier perspective and partners in improving the supplier/practitioner relationship.
