Series: ADB Business Outreach Activities

Virtual Business Opportunities Seminar 2021 with The Netherlands

19 October 2021


ADB undertakes Business Opportunities Seminars (BOSs) in its members to improve the interest and ability of eligible suppliers to locate ADB business opportunities, prepare high-quality and responsive bids, and understand ADB’s procurement and anticorruption procedures. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Procurement, Portfolio and Financial Management Department (PPFD) transitioned its Business Opportunities Outreach Initiatives from in-person to virtual format.

PPFD will continue to offer and host virtual events in 2021, in cooperation with host organizations, to plan and deliver an engaging virtual event using any desired videoconferencing platform, flexible around the practical realities of maintaining virtual audience engagement. Online delivery of business outreach events increases the representation of ADB speakers and greater flexibility in seminar design.
