Florida GovCon SUMMIT 2018

Teaming For The Bigger Deals

A Letter From Your Host

 

Join us at the Florida GovCon Summit on February 28th and March 1st in Orlando!

This years’ theme is Strategies to Scale Your Federal Contracting Business.  The Florida GovCon Summit brings together the federal contracting community across Florida.  The ultimate goal for this community is to identify and develop second-stage federal contractors who are ready to scale their businesses for prime contracting success.  

With the All Small Mentor-Protégé (ASMP) program, there are more opportunities than ever before for small businesses by:

  • combining their past performance credentials
  • creating joint ventures to reduce risks
  • staying within size standards for their NAICs codes
  • improving cashflow and ROI, and providing better financing options

Both Small Businesses and Large Businesses want to participate in ASMP, but how do they meet?  How do they develop relationships that lead to teaming, then prime and subcontractor relationships, that can eventually turn into Joint Ventures and successful contracts? These complex relationships take time to develop, not that much different from dating leading to marriage!  The small businesses that succeed must rapidly create an efficient corporate infrastructure with processes and systems, and prove they have the executive leadership to manage and grow effectively, and use these programs to maximize the value of their companies.

The Summit includes larger prime contractors, preferred teammates and subcontractors, and professionals who specialize in working within this unique industry.   During the Summit, we’ll have training sessions and workshops to address hot topics including the All Small Mentor-Protege, Joint Ventures, Cyber Compliance, Proposal Strategies, Pricing and DCAA Compliance, Value Building, Workforce Development, Targeting and Gate Reviews, Capability Statements, Understanding Acquisitions, GSA Schedules, Strategies for Veteran Business Owners, as well as other breakout sessions.   

Our program includes matchmaking sessions with agency representatives from PEO-STRI, SOCOM, NASA-KSC and prime contractors.  There will also be Dream Teams for strategy sessions with subject matter experts discussing legal, financial, risk management, human resources, contracting, banking and related topics.  

This is the third year of the Florida GovCon Summit.  Last year, we had over 200 attendees in Tampa.  Moving this year to Orlando, we have over 10,000 square feet, and we’re expecting over 300 participants.

Through our Veteran Connections track, we’re continuing to support veterans.  There is a big gap between veteran job seekers being advised “just apply on our website” and employers who are trying to find talent.  There is lots of “noise” but not enough action.  We’re bringing together key leaders to share information about programs for veterans, plus advice from veterans who have transitioned successfully to new careers, and information about veteran hiring programs at area employers.

If you want to be one of the Premier sponsors at this exclusive event, our partner sponsorship packages are listed below.  Find the one that fits your business budget and needs, and we’ll look forward to having you as a partner for Florida GovCon 2018.  Please contact me directly if you have any questions, jwclark@solvability.com or my mobile 256-882-6276.
