|Description:||Ever heard of "speed dating" where couples are matched for short periods of time to see if the chemistry is right? Well, through this unique event, we are applying the same principle -- only it involves matches between local businesses, government agncies, and prime contractors. You can't afford to miss this event! It is the place to put your best marketing techniques to work. You'll get a chance to meet with decision-makers and present your capabilities. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with buyers from representatives of local, state, and federal government agencies, including the City of Albany, SW Georgia Regional Airport, the University System of Georgia, the state Dept. of Administrative Services, the Georgia Dept. of Corrections, the Albany Marine Corps Logistics Command, the IRS, the US Dept. of Commerce, and more! Lunch will be provided, and featured speakers also will present on topics such as Business Communications, Bid Preparations, Conducting Market Research, and the Do’s and Don’ts of Government Contracting. This event will provide special instruction for Albany-area small businesses interested in doing business with the City of Albany.|
