The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California celebrates its 18th Anniversary High-Tech Small Business Conference on March 7 and 8, 2006 at The Westin Los Angeles Airport Hotel. Attendees can expect to: (1) interface with approximately 250 corporate, federal, state, and city government representatives to discuss potential contracting and subcontracting opportunities;       (2) improve knowledge and skills to compete in the federal government and prime contractor sector; and (3) attend workshops on current trends and issues. A subsequent discussion period will follow each workshop session to allow for a greater exchange of ideas and concepts.

With emphasis placed on expanding R&D opportunities for small, minority, and women-owned entrepreneurs, the conference is especially timely. In addition to meeting large organizations during the two-day Marketplace, you will have an added opportunity to further market your company at the Mixer/Networking Receptions. The conference theme continues to be Matching small businesses (including small disadvantaged businesses and women-owned businesses) with large businesses (federal government and prime contractors) at a minimum cost to each, for the purpose of discussing purchasing/procurement opportunities.?
