One of the most important features of the NASPO Exchange is the opportunity for state procurement representatives and suppliers to partner in pre-scheduled, One-on-One appointments. It’s through these partnerships that new ideas, products, and opportunities come together.
One-on-One appointment scheduling will open March 16, 2021. On that date, you will receive an email notifying you of your login credentials and providing instructions to login to make your appointments.
Be sure to check out the guidelines below as this may affect the number of representatives your company chooses to participate.
Guidelines for successful One-on-One appointments:
All individuals attending One-on-One appointments MUST be registered for the conference.
Suppliers will be allotted a maximum number of appointments dependent on the supplier/state member ratio. This number will be calculated after registration closes on March 11, 2021. In 2019, suppliers were awarded six One-on-One appointments.
Each individual can bring a second person to your One-on-One appointments. NOTE: The second person must be a registered attendee and from your company.
Each individual registered in a category granted One-on-One appointments will be able to schedule appointments online before the conference. Only the name of the person scheduling the appointment will be listed on the schedule.
Suppliers who register by the March 11 deadline will have an opportunity to schedule One-on-One appointments prior to the Conference.
Each company can only meet with each director and/or state representative one time. For example, if a state has two attendees present, your company can meet with Representative X and Representative Y, but each individual only once.
What are One-on-One appointments?
Time has been carved into the conference program for the directors and/or state representative to meet with representatives from your company. Each of these scheduled appointments is 15 minutes in length.
How do I sign up for One-on-Ones?
If you register prior to the deadline of March 11, you will receive an email inviting you to create your secure account and begin scheduling your One-on-One appointments.
The email to set up your secure account and begin scheduling your One-on-One appointments will be sent on March 16. One-on-One appointment scheduling will be open March 16 through March 30. All appointments must be scheduled prior to the system closing on March 30. Scheduling will not reopen for additional appointments after March 30.
To ensure the best opportunity to meet with your preferred state directors/representatives, registering prior to the March 11 deadline is strongly encouraged. To view the list of One-on-One appointment times, please see the conference agenda.
Can I print my One-on-One schedule?
Yes, you will be able to print your schedule in advance through the scheduling system.
How do I get a One-on-One with a state that doesn’t have availability?
If you’re interested in meeting with a state that doesn’t have availability, as additional state members register, we will advertise the opportunity.
