UND is tax-exempt, so everything purchased for your conference or event through UND is tax free. That means you save money on everything from supplies to food to printing.
UND receives discounts from major suppliers (i.e. paper and other office supplies) who have won North Dakota state bids. These savings are passed on to you.
UND is committed to serving you year after year. Why add the task of organizing a conference or event on top of your already long list of things to do? Save time, money and headaches by outsourcing the task to professionals.
