Government Symposium 2018 date_range Tue, May 22, 2018 - Thu, May 24, 2018

Below are reasons that YOU should be attending the 2018 Midwest Small Business Government Symposium.

Are you a business in Construction, IT, Manufacturing, Manufacturing Support or Professional Services who is interested in strengthening its Government Contracts footprint?

Then you should be in Moline, IL May 23-24, 2018

We have listened to your feedback and have developed a robust and value added symposium this year!  This year the focus is on ALL BUSINESS with the government.  

We will show you tips and tricks for maximizing government websites and tools to your advantage and we will connect you to valuable industry contacts doing business in the government sector. 

You just need to come open to the experience, ready to connect and learn! 

And don’t worry about missing out on the break outs—we have scheduled them so that you can attend both, as we believe you will find great value in each of these sessions! 

Event Highlights:

- Connect with Contracting and Requirements Personnel at the Rock Island Arsenal and supported commands

- Network with large Government Prime Vendors and other Small Businesses who may be interested in forming partnerships

- Learn from Small Business Advocacy teams about how best to leverage available resources to build a successful government strategy
