Find opportunities to save time and money at the HUB Vendor Fair Nov. 7

Oct. 31, 2019

The UNT Office of the Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration and the UNT System administration are committed to doing business with Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs). The UNT System HUB program’s mission is to promote and increase procurement opportunities with HUBs by demonstrating a good faith effort through advocacy, education, knowledge and development.

A Vendor Fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 7 in the University Union, room 314, will allow UNT and UNT World work areas to become more familiar with HUB vendors and learn how each of our units can benefit from visiting with HUB vendors.

The HUB Vendor Fair will include opportunities to gather information on HUB vendors, collect samples and win door prizes. Those who attend the fair can begin to establish relationships with vendors. The HUB Vendor Fair provides a perfect opportunity for vendors to introduce some of their cutting-edge products and services to faculty and staff, which may result in saving UNT and UNT World work areas money and time, while making day-to-day operations easier and more efficient.

A Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) is:

  • A business that is at least 51 percent owned by an Asian Pacific American, Black American, Hispanic American, Native American, American woman and/or a 20 percent Service Connected Disabled Veteran
  • Owned by a Texas resident
  • Principally operated within the State of Texas
