Business opportunity conference set for Oct. 25 in Idaho Falls

Idaho Commerce Director Jeffrey Sayer
The Idaho Business Opportunity Conference will take place Oct. 25 at the Shilo Inn in Idaho Falls, 780 Lindsay Boulevard.

This represents the 24th annual opportunity for manufacturers, contractors, distributors and service providers to meet with procurement officials from government agencies to discuss purchasing needs and ways businesses can improve their selling techniques.

The event begins at 7:30 a.m. and will go to 3:30 p.m. The program includes government panels and speakers who will offer insight into the entire process of doing business with the federal government and the state. Topics include Getting on the GSA Schedule, Certification and Loan Programs, Subcontracting with Large Prime Contractors, and Doing Business with the Idaho National Laboratory.

“The Idaho Business Opportunity Conference attracts a diverse group of small businesses who are either actively engaged or have the capability to provide the government with goods and services,” said Jeffery Sayer, director of Idaho Commerce. “This is an excellent opportunity for Idaho companies to receive personalized assistance to connect with government procurement experts and enhance opportunities to expand their business contracts.”

Registration is $55 and covers all seminars, access to all buyers and purchasing agents, continental breakfast and lunch. Idaho businesses interested in attending can register by going to this link: https://www.ptassist.com/secure/idaho_ptac_register.php?id=9319A37225
