Our symposium sessions are designed to be educational and interactive and will include opportunities for questions and answers. In addition, we offer networking opportunities to encourage small businesses to connect and hear directly from small business development partners, statewide contract suppliers offering subcontracting opportunities and various state agencies, colleges and universities with purchasing opportunities.
