The SBA’s Santa Ana District Office and Orange County/Inland Empire SBDC are proud to present the 9th Annual Southern California 8(a) and Small Business Conference. The 2019 Conference will be held at the Hotel Irvine on TBA.   

The purpose of this Conference is to provide a forum to educate, guide, and assist small business, in working with federal, local, and state governments. This event will provide an opportunity to meet buyers and contracting officers from large companies and government agencies to discuss business opportunities in a one-on-one setting.

The SBA’s Santa Ana District Office is engaging subject matter experts to deliver informative presentations on topics of importance to government and commercial sector prime and subcontractors through numerous workshops. There will also be plenty of opportunities for networking.

Keep in mind: THIS IS A TOOL IN THE PROCUREMENT PROCESS. DO NOT EXPECT TO WIN A CONTRACT ON-SITE. Ask pertinent questions and find out what companies and agencies are looking for and what you need to do to qualify.
