The El Paso Community College Contract Opportunities Center will host the 15th Annual Veterans Business Conference. The conference will be held at the EPCC Administrative Services Center, 9050 Viscount Blvd. El Paso, TX 79925 in the Auditorium and Boardroom from  9 a.m. to 1 p.m. MDT. 

 

ALL VETERAN & NON-VETERAN BUSINESSES AND ENTREPRENEURS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND.

 

This conference is open to all businesses, contractors and vendors interested in contracting with government agencies.  There will be a focus on Veteran/Service Disabled Veteran Owned businesses, but all businesses are invited. 

This conference provides a venue for local and regional Veteran Owned businesses to make federal agencies and their prime contractors aware of their existence and capabilities. It further allows businesses of all socioeconomic categories to network and begin the development of business relationships. Historically, this conference has been a resource for government agencies and contractors to extend their outreach to West Texas and its veteran and commercial business community.

Active duty military personnel that are about to transition to civilian life and have an interest in being entrepreneurs are strongly encouraged to attend this conference. Organizations that assist in business development have been invited to participate

 

Sponsorship opportunities will be available for businesses seeking to highlight and market their firms to conference attendees.
