On March 12- 13, 2014 I will be attending the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Small Business Expo 2014, Growing Your Business in the Government Market at the Hilton Chicago/ Northbrook in Northbrook, Illinois. The Expo is hosted by the Chicago and Lake Michigan Posts of SAME in association with the Wisconsin Procurement Institute.
Having attended this conference the last three years, I have found the event an excellent networking opportunity with potential small business teaming partners as well as a great educational opportunity with workshops covering important topics relevant to Federal contracting. One of the highlights of the Expo is the Federal Agency briefings in which representatives from the GSA, Veterans Administration, US Army Corps of Engineers, US Navy, US Air Force, FAA and other Federal agencies outline current, FY 2014 and future anticipated design and construction opportunities. PRA is one of the sponsors of the Expo this year.
