The City of Chicago Department of Procurement Services (DPS) is hosting its 8th annual Construction Summit.


This event will feature over 75 exhibitors providing information and assistance to attendees about upcoming construction opportunities with government and employment resources. Speak with subject-matter experts from government agencies, assist agencies, and support agencies to give your business the tools needed to bid on and earn government contracts. This is a great for prime contractors, sub-contractors, and construction-related business owners to network and form lasting connections for collaboration on future construction projects.


Attendees will also be able to attend curated workshops focusing on construction opportunities, how to become certified, and employment resources. These workshops provide valuable information to help our vendor community compete for and earn government contracts.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Construction Summit and encourage you to share this event with anyone who would benefit.
