From Dec. 9 to Dec. 11, the Department of Veterans Affairs will host its annual National Veterans Small Business Engagement (NVSBE) at the Georgia World Congress Center, located at 285 Andrew Young International Blvd., NW, Atlanta, Ga., 30313.
This three-day event attracts thousands of Veteran-owned small businesses to connect with federal agencies, commercial corporations, prime contractors and other partners to foster success. With greater opportunities for direct access and exposure to contracting and program specialists, NVSBE welcomes Veterans to make the connections necessary to succeed in today’s competitive contracting environment.
“As a three-time past attendee, I believe the single greatest benefit for our company is the convenience and efficiency of an agency-wide effort,” said Martha Weekly of FFE, Inc., a service-disabled Veteran-owned small business.
“It is invaluable to have face-to-face meetings, and that is difficult to execute nationwide for a small company. It has been helpful for me to connect with not only VA personnel, but potential teaming partners as well. I believe that it is a good value, both in time and dollars spent,” she said.
This year’s NVSBE theme – Access – provides attendees an unprecedented level of engagement that helps small businesses, particularly Veterans, compete for and win business.
Own a business, but not a Veteran? No problem. The small business engagement is open to all businesses. The NVSBE agenda includes networking roundtables, business opportunity sessions, and lunch with decision makers and potential customers.
