September 11, 2012 - Albany Matchmaker & Expo
At the Albany Matchmaker & Expo, small business owners can discuss potential contracting opportunities face-to-face with representatives from colleges and universities, large corporations and federal, state and local agencies. This annual sellout event is a valuable networking opportunity with dozens of exhibitors and government contracting resources.
Small businesses can participate in either the morning session or the afternoon session and send up to two representatives at a cost of $45 per person. Small businesses will schedule individual appointments with participating buyers prior to the event during the online registration and payment process.
Free Webinar on Top Five Disaster Risks to Small Businesses
Small businesses are particularly vulnerable to losses caused by natural disaster, cyberattacks, and – on a smaller scale – structural failure due to random events like faulty sprinkler systems or localized fires.
One of the first steps in creating a business continuity plan involves assessing risk. Join Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration in a live online discussion on Tuesday, July 10 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. EST for a discussion on how to protect your business from the risks that could force you to close your doors for good.
