The City of Chattanooga’s mission is to break down barriers that prevent people from living the lives they want in their community. We believe this includes the business community and helping them do business with the City. 

The Purchasing Fair gives business owners the opportunity to learn about the city’s process for working with vendors, doing business relative to procurement, accounts payable, and the types of goods and services needed from each department. 

Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to meet with department decision makers and receive valuable information about working with specific divisions of the department.
