PLAN NOW TO ATTEND SAME's 2018 Federal SMALL BUSINESS CONFERENCE!
Three Days. Two Events. One Location. Endless Opportunities.
The Call for Presentations has been extended to Friday, June 22! Make sure to get your abstract in on time.
We are pleased to announce that the SAME Small Business Conference you know and love is co-locating with the Department of Veteran's Affairs' National Veterans Small Business Engagement in 2018, creating the biggest and best event connecting small businesses directly with federal government procurement decision makers, contracting officers, small business liaison officers, and leaders. The event will also bring together small businesses with large businesses that have teaming and sub-contracting opportunities in support of government work. The SBC and NVSBE will share an exhibit hall, networking events, and educational sessions. Participants can freely attend any activity taking place throughout the three days.
From your on-site experience to your access to procurement decision-makers in the federal market-place, the SBC promises to deliver unprecedented value!
