Doing Business with the Government
Companies interested in selling to federal, state and local government agencies must learn how the government conducts business. Join us and learn how to register your business, identify sales opportunities, understand the bid process, evaluate solicitations and find assistance resources. Presented by Wanda Robinson, Procurement Counselor with Appalachian State University’s Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC). Those attending will come away with the tools to increase their government sales efforts.
Companies looking to increase sales, reduce dependence on the domestic market and stabilize seasonal fluctuations should consider exporting. In this economy you cannot leave any stone unturned! Come learn what kinds of tools you need in your toolbox to become a global competitor and find out what government programs are there to help. Presented by Dan Holt, Small Business Administration International Trade Finance Specialist; George Thomas.
