Small businesses - join us for a day of panel discussions, workshops, matchmaking with government and commercial buyers, and networking opportunities to help companies grow their businesses. Past, current, and potential future participants in SBA's 8(a) Business Development Programare urged to register for this conference to learn how to expand your business footprint into federal contracting and grow relationships with state, local and commercial partners.

U.S. federal government contracts represent a tremendous sales and revenue opportunity for small businesses because:

The U.S. Government is the world’s largest customer

It buys all types of products and services in both large and small quantities

It is required by law to provide opportunities for small businesses

If you'd like to learn more about how your small business can access federal government contracts, join us!
