2018 GovBuy Event Basic Info


2018 NY GovBuy--A Statewide Government Buyers Event

May 2 & 3, 2018

Empire State Plaza Convention Center & Albany Capital Center

Albany, New York



Thanks to our collaboration with SAMPO, OSC, and SUNY, we will present a more comprehensive purchasing event for all NYS purchasers. This is a perfect venue for vendors to connect with buyers from New York State agencies, municipal governments, public and private schools, etc. GovBuy also provides a great professional development opportunity for buyers to meet with vendors, network with other buyers, and participate in a host of training classes designed to help make better, stronger procurement decisions. More than 1,300 people attended last year's event!



This event has become so popular, we had to expand! Our 2018 event will be held at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center AND the new Albany Capital Center. These venues are connected by a covered walkway. To learn more about the Albany Capital Center, visit



Event information for exhibitors and attendees will be posted here soon. Booth space will be available on a first come, first serve basis. So, to avoid being wait-listed, exhibitors should register as soon as the registration links are available!
