    As a small business, this allowed me to meet many District Office representatives,understand who the major primes are,and realize who my competition is.... all in one location.



    The conference was very well attended,and I met with many people I had been trying to reach for some time. The networking sessions were extremely helpful;it was great to have large businesses there actually looking for small business support and teaming opportunities.


  Continues to be one of the best forums to meet with SBs and other firms in one location.
