National Small Business Federal Contracting Summit | Summer 2023

This popular event boasts a robust agenda that includes:

  • Timely education and information on current trends, opportunities, and threats to small business contractors
  • Technical Training
  • Regulatory updates

Access to federal agencies and prime contractors and the opportunity to meet one-on-one with Agency and Prime Acquisition Representatives (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the list of agencies and prime contractors who have confirmed).

Matchmaking Process
Live Attendee: At the start of the session, Agencies / Primes will introduce themselves. You then meet with any of the agencies/primes in which you have an interest in doing business. There are no sign-up sheets or bells and whistles. You are allowed 5 minutes – or longer if there is no line behind you. If you are patient, you will have the opportunity to meet with everyone. Make sure to prioritize the list of Agencies/Primes with whom you wish to meet and bring your one-page capabilities statement and business cards.

Virtual Attendee: Registrants will receive an informal survey via email from [email protected] (please add to your address book) that will include capabilities statements, NAICS, Agency / Prime meeting priorities, and more.  Prior to the event, registrants will receive links to their on-line meeting rooms.  Each session will be for 10 minutes. Please be prepared to share your elevator pitch and provide solutions to the agencies/primes with which you are meeting. If you wish to take part in the matchmaking sessions, we require you to complete this survey no later than Wednesday, 7/19/2023 at 8:00 PM EST. Failure to complete the survey may result in your inability to have matchmaking appointments.
