BUYERS:
This event offers one of the most efficient ways for your organization to meet businesses to fulfill your procurement needs, including:

  • Small Businesses
  • Small Disadvantaged and 8(a) Certified Companies
  • HubZone Certified Companies
  • Veteran and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Businesses
  • Women-Owned Businesses
  • Minority-Owned Businesses

Each buying organization will receive a meeting link to join their private one-on-one meetings with their matched small businesses. 

Price: There is no cost to the buying organizations.

 

SMALL BUSINESSES:
As a small business, you will be able to see the participating buyers who plan on attending prior to registering and will be able to check their NAICS codes and compare them to those of your company. Not sure of your business NAICS code? You can browse through codes based on industry type.

Once you choose your code (or codes), the system will automatically match you with buyers that are looking for your products and services (based on the NAICS codes) and you will be notified of these matches. You will then have the opportunity to schedule a 15-minute, timed meeting with the buyer.

Price: $149 per business.

Small businesses will be limited to 5 appointments for the event. If you schedule more than the allotted appointments, you will be asked to remove the over scheduled appointments. Additional appointments may open at a later date. Updates will be posted on the website as the event nears.

Thank you to our sponsors!
