We have changed our name. But not our passion.

SBC is now SBE. It may seem like a small difference, but the shift is a significant one – and denotes what sets SAME apart in the world of connecting federal agencies and the uniformed services to small businesses. We are pleased to announce that the SAME Small Business Conference you know and love is joining forces with the Department of Veteran's Affairs - National Veterans Small Business Engagement in 2018!  This one, comprehensive event, is now bigger and better. SBE aims to continue to deliver best in class collaboration and partnerships, top notch education and training sessions, and the perfect venue for market research and networking opportunities under one roof. From your on-site experience to your access to procurement decision-makers in the federal market-place, the SBE promises to deliver unprecedented value!

" I am new to business development in the Federal arena. I can't imagine a better, more valuable way I could have spent three days in 2017. Looking forward to next year!"
-William Wainger, Global Inc., 2017 SBC Participant
