A Tremendous Opportunity to Meet with Hard to Schedule Government Groups.

 This Event Is For Everyone: 

  • Whether you are new to Government Sales...
  • Want to know the latest developments and their impact on your business...
  • Want to maximize the number of Agencies you can see In one day...
  • Need help with a capabilities statement...
  • Afraid you can’t get conventional financing for your company...
  • Sick of bidding with poor results...
  • Have any Agency related issues or questions...


Now is the perfect time to connect with Outreach Personnel...

Contracting Cornucopia  provides business development opportunities for vendors in a setting where they can get personal attention in successfully marketing their products, services and supplies to Defense and Civilian procurement representatives, primes, and acquisition personnel.

There is no substitute for face to face networking:  There is a saying: "20% of the small businesses get 80% of the business". Why? Because they have forged a personal business relationship with the Agency. This includes knowing the key players by sight (even better if they know you by sight) as well as understanding the Agency's Mission and knowing how your goods and or services fit into their goals.

The truth is that there is less than "full and open competition" as you might initially interpret it to mean.  It is vital to understand the government contracting environment as it actually operates. This includes both the written and unwritten rules.

Increase both your Federal IQ and Federal Presence:
If your company is a Small Business, (8(a), Small and Disadvantaged Business, Small and Woman Owned Business, Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business, Native American Owned Business, Veteran Owned Business, HUBZone, you MUST plan on attending this one day Seminar.


The Federal Government consistently misses its Small Business Goals...
Yet, it's difficult for Small Businesses to break into Government Agencies.
What’s up with that?
 


This One Day Event will give you the information you need to succeed in Federal Sales.
This Event is for All Small Business: (8 (a)'s, Small and Disadvantaged Businesses, Small and Woman Owned Businesses, Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses, Veteran Owned, Native American Owned, HUBZones.), Anyone who wants to do business with the Government, or increase the business that they are already doing.

If you have any questions about the appropriateness of your product or service or anything else, please call Vaune at (410) 535-3861, or call or text me at (703) 477-9909
