Some businesses that could benefit from the vendor fair are those that provide general contracting, landscaping, painting, plumbing, web development, electrical, security, technology, consulting, printing, graphic design, and marketing.

The event was formed by Palm Springs Mayor Jefferey Bernstein. He says the event is "a great opportunity for local businesses to learn how they can benefit by doing work with the city."

He says that the process of working with a public agency can seem "daunting," but the vendor fair will educate business owners about proposal processes, bids, and vendor approval. "There's lot of opportunities for all sizes of businesses to do work with the cities," said Mayor Bernstein.

And Mayor Bernstein says this is an effort support the local economy. "A big key is keeping the money in the valley," said Mayor Bernstein. "As a city official, the more I can keep the local economy going, the better."
