Announcing the Keynote Speaker for GPC 2012 Go There!, the Small Business Government Procurement Conference of the Year

More than 1,000 small, minority, women and veteran-owned businesses descend on the George R. Brown Convention Center on April 11 and 12 for the 20th annual GPC conference. A FREE day pass is being offered on the GPC website:

Government Procurement Connections, the government procurement conference for small businesses, announced today that Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale of Gallery Furniture will serve as GPC’s Awards Breakfast keynote speaker. Small businesses, large primes and agency representatives will be enthralled and leaning forward in their seats to hear Mattress Mack share his points on how to stay in the game during any kind of economy and while experiencing business challenges.

Monique Carswell, Marketing Director at Black Enterprise Magazine will also be sharing marketing tips at our POWER UP CAFÉ.

The theme this year is “Go There” and the event includes two full days of contract information-packed Industry Forums, Ft. Bend County Spotlight, Power Up Café, VIP Reception, Face-to-Face meetings, exhilarating expo hall, and a group of dynamic GPC CARES Representatives to make the attendees’ experience fulfilling.

Our decision-maker led Industry Forums include:

· IT/Communications

· Transit and Transportation

· Engineering and Construction

Attendees will gain a roadmap of upcoming projects in target industries and areas, meet key agency and large prime decision makers plus have the opportunity to network and identify potential teaming partners for project pursuits.

What past attendees are saying about GPC:

“I made many new business relationships. One particular construction company that I visited on Construction Row, awarded my company a contract within months of meeting them at GPC. Attending GPC was the critical piece towards getting our company this opportunity” said Marylyn Harris, Harrland Company, (SDVOSB).

Anthony Covington, Cerebus Star Enterprises said, “Going to GPC 2011 directly contributed to Cerebus Star’s success in 2011. GPC allowed me to meet people who introduced me to key decision makers, guided me to key events, and helped me obtain the certifications that are helping my business grow.”


In Government Procurement Connections has evolved into a collaborative effort between local, state and federal government entities. This unique event marks an exciting new day in inter-governmental cooperation and information accessibility regarding government contracting opportunities.
