The U.S. Department of the Army Office of Small Business Programs would like to invite you to attend the 2012 Army Small Business Conference on August 2-3, 2012 to be held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC.

The 2012 Army Small Business Conference is a national conference designed to provide attendees with “Access to Success.” Attendees of the conference will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and build partnerships with federal government representatives, small businesses, and prime contractors.  In FY 2011, The Department of the Army awarded $23.7 billion in small business contract awards across the following categories:

  • $9.5 billion to 8(a) Small Disadvantaged Businesses
  • $4.6 billion to Veteran-Owned Small Businesses
  • $3.2 billion to Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses
  • $4.1 billion to Women-Owned Small Businesses

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to make connections within this community before the end of the fiscal year! Small business contracting liaisons from the Army, Navy and Air Force will be presenting procurement information on doing business with their agencies and will also participate in one-on-one matchmaking sessions. Also take advantage of networking with DoD, prime contractor, and small business leaders in an evening reception for further partnership opportunities.
