    Early Bird Registration Bonus! (Ends April 1, 2020)     Register Now

    Register by April 1, 2020 for the opportunity to pitch your business to the general session audience.  The first 24 small businesses to register and meet the offer requirements will be given a pitch slot. All small businesses that check the box requesting an elevator pitch slot and register by April 1, 2020 will be on deck to pitch if time becomes available (if a company is not present for their slot or a speaker runs short.) The order of registrations received will be used to determine next company called to pitch.  

    This is a great opportunity for government representatives, prime contractors and potential teaming partners to know who you are!  Check the Elevator Pitch box when you complete your registration by April 1, 2020 to be considered for this opportunity.

    ELEVATOR PITCH PROCESS:

    Small businesses who check the Elevator Pitch box will be considered for a pitch time.  They will have 60 seconds to introduce their business and highlight their capabilities to the entire general session. To be eligible, the small business must register for the conference during the early bird registration period ending April 1, 2020, be registered in SAM.gov, be registered in the MDA electronic Small Business Information Exchange (eSBIE) and must able to provide a capabilities statement.  After the registration is received, the MDA OSBP will follow up with eligible companies to collect the capabilities statement and go over pitch guidelines.

     

    MATCHMAKING

    Day 3 of the Conference will be dedicated to Matchmaking.  Registration for matchmaking will open two weeks prior to the conference on April 27, 2020. The registration link will be sent to you via email.
