Calling all local vendors!

Join us for The College of New Jersey’s 1st Annual Small Business Supplier Diversity Event, an exclusive event that connects local small businesses with TCNJ’s purchasing officers. This fair serves as a great platform for entrepreneurs and small enterprises to showcase their products and services directly to the academic/nonacademic department.

This is the opportunity for networking, collaboration, and the fostering of long-term relationships. Small businesses across various industries will have the chance to demonstrate how their offerings can meet the needs of TCNJ’s diverse and dynamic campus.

Vendors will benefit from:

  • One-on-one interactions with TCNJ purchasing officers and key department representatives.
  • A deeper understanding of the college’s procurement processes and needs.
  • Discuss with campus users the goods/services that can be provided and how you can assist them with any upcoming contract opportunities.
  • Exposure to a broader college community looking to support and engage with local businesses.

We particularly invite businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, and those holding diverse business certifications to join us.
