YOU are a small business expert and know what is critical to be successful. What can transform small businesses moving forward? What do small businesses need to know most NOW? Submit your fresh, forward-thinking ideas for the education and insights that businesses need to succeed in the Federal marketplace.

We are now accepting submissions for session proposals for the 2023 Small Business Conference!

The SBC serves small businesses across the spectrum – from those trying to get their foot in the door to those with many years of success winning in federal contracts. Therefore, we’re searching for sessions geared toward these four tracks to serve a broad audience:
  • Entering the Federal Marketplace – ideas and approaches to promote and position a business that’s new to federal work.
  • Marketing and Business Development – what businesses need to understand about how to promote and position themselves, the uniqueness of selling to the government, and how to build brand awareness.
  • Regulations, Rules, and the Government Framework – sessions focusing on what small businesses need to understand about ever-changing and evolving government laws, regulations, guidelines, and programs.
  • Advanced Business and Procurement Strategies – means and methods for established businesses looking to excel and grow further.
Before applying, please review the Session Submission Resources page for more specifics on the types of sessions we’re looking for, speaker guidelines, and the abstract evaluation process. By submitting your abstract you have read and agree to the terms of the Speaker Agreement. 

Submit your abstract submission by Monday, June 12, 2023. Each speaker may submit up to two (2) sessions for consideration.
