Dear Valued Vendor:

The South Carolina Association of Governmental Purchasing Official’s (SCAGPO) Annual Professional Development Forum and Trade Show will be held November 17-19, 2020 at Marriott Myrtle Beach  Resort and Spa at the Grand Dunes.

With your support, the last few years have been hugely successful and we look forward to your participation again this year.  For those of you who were unable to attend last year, we want to extend a special invitation for you to join your peers in showcasing your company’s products or services while meeting procurement professionals representing State Government, School Districts, City and County Governments, and Municipalities from around the State. This event will offer you a great opportunity for networking with these professionals. 

SCAGPO is continuing our robust co-sponsorship program to offer Partnerships levels in the same tiers as last year.  The levels remain $1500.00 - $5,000.00 with our Partnership levels are as follows:

  • Platinum - $5,000.00 each (4 available)
  • Gold - $3,500.00 each
  • Silver $2, 500.00 each
  • Bronze $1,500.00 each
  • Bag $1,500.00 each (1 available)
  • Name Badge $500.00 each (2 available)


More information regarding Partnership Levels may be found in the Documents Section of the bottom of this pag. You may also contact our Chairperson,  regarding opportunities to Partner with us or to donate to our Silent Auction.

Vendors will continue to be allowed to choose their own booth.  As you are registering, we will ask you to give us (three) options to choose from.  Once your payment has been received and confirmed, we will assign your booth based on your choice of the booths remaining available. A copy of the Trade Show Map will be updated regularly and published in the document section below.  Please consult it before you begin registering in order choose the best  booth for your organization.  Because booth assignment will not be made until payment is received, we encourage you to pay online or forward your checks to our Treasurer as soon as possible.

The registration process is somewhat different now as well.  Therefore, we suggest you please review the directions we’ve provided to you prior to beginning.

The 3nd Annual Samuel Hanvey Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament and  Annual Scholarship Bowling Tournament events will be held on Tuesday, November 17. Registration is now open.  Golf Chairs Mac Stiles and his team will continue to make improvements and add more opportunities for fun for the event. They and the Bowling Chairperson are planning great pre-forum events and networking opportunities for members and vendors. Please contact them for more information. The registrations for them will be as a separate event. If you are interested in partnering for one or both of these events, please contact or Cosponsorship Chairperson.

Vendors are also encouraged to participate in our annual Silent Auction, hosted by the Certification Committee.  Proceeds from the auction are used to provide scholarships to members in pursuit of Procurement Certifications.  You may participate either by donating an item to the auction or by bidding on items at the Forum.

 Finally, we ask that you please adhere to our deadlines as follows:

Early Registration - August 15, 2019:  The ($700.00) registration fee is discounted to $600.00 until this date.  All payments received after 5:00 pm on August 15, 2019 will not received the $100.00 discount.
