SBC serves small businesses across the spectrum–from those trying to get their foot in the door to those with many years of success winning in federal contracts. Therefore, we’re searching for sessions geared toward these four tracks to serve a broad audience:
- Entering the Federal Marketplace – ideas and approaches to promote and position a business that’s new to federal work.
- Marketing and Business Development – what businesses need to understand about how to promote and position themselves, the uniqueness of selling to the government, and how to build brand awareness.
- Regulations, Rules, and the Government Framework – sessions focusing on what small businesses need to understand about ever-changing and evolving government laws, regulations, guidelines, and programs.
- Advanced Business and Procurement Strategies – means and methods for established businesses looking to excel and grow further.
Hear from Gloria Larkin, President & CEO, TargetGov, on why you should speak at SBC!
