Join us at the Florida GovCon Summit on March 29th and 30th, 2017 at DoubleTree Tampa Westshore.
If you're a sailor, you know that just having the boat ready and getting the right crew is only the beginning. When you're in the race, you've got to consider weather, currents and wind, as well as your competitors. How quickly everything can change, and each race is completely different. It's your experience, your team, your knowledge, and your willingness to take risks. But learning more about the course and developing a plan, applying a strategy that responds quickly is also critical.
For small businesses competing for federal contracts in Florida’s fast-growing, high-tech industry staying ahead of opportunity, technology, regulations and the competition is more important than ever.
What does it take to succeed in this rapidly changing environment? It's even harder to predict since we don't know what the new adminstration will do!
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Sid Fuchs, President and CEO of MacAulay-Brown, and author of Get Off the Bench discusses how to create value through relationships.
Conversations will include:
Thought leaders in machine intelligence, IT, cyber and data analytics describing cross-over between federal and commercial, and the convergence of technologies, to capitalize on proven strengths of our communities.
Executives discussing federal contracting strategies, and how to build more effective teaming relationships and develop your pipeline.
Subject matter experts in federal contracting discussing latest trends in...
Contract Vehicles, GSA Schedules, Protests, Certification, Security, Compliance, Joint Ventures, Past Performance, Teaming, ISO Certifications, Capture Strategy, HR (FLSA, SCA, ACA, 401K), Branding, Proposal Management, Rate & Pricing Models, International Contracting, Mergers & Acquisitions, etc.
VETERAN JOB FAIR:
If you are a hiring manager and want to do some onsite interviews with transitioning veterans, we want to talk to you. With support from area resources, we're setting up a small, focused job fair, creating a virtual resume and capabilities PDF. We're also creating a web page where you can list your company, contacts, types of job, clearance requirements and a link to your website. Watch for the link for Virtual Veteran Hiring sponsorship.
We are adding a Photographer booth to take pictures for transitioning veterans for LinkedIn. You can get your photo updated at this event too.
Keith Hoffert of Business Radio-X will be there again this year. We'll be adding a link so you can join the show. Get more exposure for your company by being on the air with Keith, and sending links to the show out afterwards.
Let's make it Fun, Interactive and Productive:
- We're adding Hot Seats, so you can submit questions ahead of time and we'll toss them to a panel of subject matter experts. Or put yourself in the HOT SEAT and get advice directly.
- Teaming Talks - identify your NAICs codes, your target areas, your socio-economic statuses, your past performance - and let's share that information so you can have some teaming discussions.
- Strategy Sessions and 1:1's - setting aside appointments and sessions for discussions; some may be facilitated group sessions.
- This is NOT the same old conference - we're looking for your ideas how to make the best use of your time.
- Contact Listing in excel format - will be provided to all attendees after the event.
Focused exclusively on small business strategies for the federal marketplace, Florida GovCon Summit will broaden your thinking and provide actionable insights. Just as important as discussions with the thought leaders in attendance will be the opportunity to pursue these and other issues with your peers—fellow defense and aerospace contractors from companies with $500K to to $30 million in Revenue.
You're NOT A STARTUP, and you don't want to hear the same old stuff: You've got active subcontracts, you've set up teaming agreements and even part of the way through Joint Ventures, Mentor-Protege and GSA Schedules. You've got great past performance and you're building your pipeline. You've got most of your infrastructure in place. But every time you get past one obstacle, you find out about another one! You're especially worried about being locked out of the market because you can't get on the right contract vehicle! And all this is costing so much time and money. We're determined to help you find the answers you need so you can walk away with an action plan and a broader range of teammates and opportunities.
