“We look forward to having the MITN Purchasing Group attend the 6th Annual Reverse Trade Fair for MPPOA members. The Reverse Trade Fair serves several purposes. First, it is a great way for our agency members to participate in a large vendor outreach event. Second, it gives agencies and vendors the opportunity to have face-to-face contact with professional peers from around the state. An added bonus, this is MPPOA's largest fundraiser and completely funds our Educational Scholarship Program.
