The Nation’s Leading Small Business One-On-One Procurement Event

Westin Galleria, Houston, TX. – Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Small business owners, managers, technologists and marketing associates are invited to have face to face meetings with 100 buyers from Federal, state and local government agencies and major corporations to explore opportunities to sell their products and services. The Houston area enjoys one of the most respected SBA district offices and resource partners including SCORE and the Small Business Development Centers. Accordingly we’ve invited them to be present to further assist you in pursuing new sales.

Knowing how busy you are, it is reasonable for you to ask—Why Is This For Me?

Business Matchmaking is the most successful public-private program of its kind and has facilitated over 80,000 productive meetings resulting in several billions of dollars in contracts already granted to participating small business.

– Hector Barreto, Former Administrator, U.S. Small Business Administration
