Information from Business Engagement Tele-Town Hall
If you were not able to join the tele-town hall and would like to know what was discussed, we have posted the full transcript on our website, www.phldnc.com, at “LATEST” in the “Vendors” tab. We have also posted a “Business Engagement FAQ,” which includes answers to a number of questions we have been asked regarding vendor contracts over the last several months. You can also find the FAQ under the “Vendors” section.
Should you have any additional, specific questions about your business’ ability to respond to an RFP or be considered for a contract that are not answered in these documents, please email [email protected] Someone from the Host Committee will reply to you as promptly as possible.
Upcoming Business Engagement Events
The Host Committee and Democratic National Convention Committee are planning additional business outreach events over the next few weeks, so there are no shortage of opportunities to learn about Convention supplier needs and get your questions answered. The following events are coming up in November:
• Thursday, November 12th: Webinar to show prospective vendors how to sign up for the 2016 Vendor Directory;
• Monday, November 16th: In-person business outreach meeting (location to be announced).
Specifics for each of these events will be announced in the coming days.
2016 Vendor Directory
The 2016 Vendor Directory is an online database for which vendors and suppliers can register and, in doing so, express their interest in being considered for Convention-related contracts. To sign up for the vendor directory, complete and submit the online form found at http://www.phldnc.com/philadelphia-2016-vendor-form.
The Host Committee is committed to hearing from the business community as preparations for the Convention continue. We look forward to working with a diverse array of businesses, including minority-, women-, LGBT-, veteran- and disabled-owned businesses, to handle a variety of event-related needs.
It is our goal to make this the most inclusive Convention yet, and one of the most important ways we can fulfill that goal is by engaging business owners, making sure they have as much information as possible and help them understand the kinds of contract opportunities that will be available leading up to and during the Convention.
We hope you find these informational sessions useful, and we continue to be excited to work with you to present a fun, successful Convention.
