This event offers one of the most efficient ways for your organization to meet businesses to fulfill your procurement needs, including:

  • Small Businesses
  • Small Disadvantaged and 8(a) Certified Companies
  • HubZone Certified Companies
  • Veteran and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Businesses
  • Women-Owned Businesses
  • Minority-Owned Businesses

Each buying organization will have their own loge/suite for meeting with small businesses. 

Price: There is no cost to the buying organizations. Continental breakfast, lunch and parking will be provided.


As a supplier, you will be able to see the participating buyers who plan on attending prior to registering and will be able to check their NAICS codes and compare them to those of your company. Not sure what NAICS code you’d like? You can browse through codes based on industry type.

Once you choose your code, the system will automatically match you with buyers that are looking for your products and services (based on the NAICS codes) and you will be notified of these matches. You will then have the opportunity to schedule a 15-minute, timed meeting with the buyer.

Price: $159 per person; $50 for each additional attendee from your company

Continental breakfast and lunch will be hosted in the Terrace Club; parking is provided. Space for suppliers is limited and based upon the number of buyers who participate, so register early.

Suppliers will be limited to 12 appointments for the event. If buyers have an open slot in their schedule, you may be able to meet with them on that day as a walk up appointment on a first-come, first-served basis. Buyers’ schedules will be posted on their doors so you are able to view their availability.

This is a great opportunity to meet with large business buyers and network with your small business peers.
