REGISTRATION FORMS ARE ATTACHED OR YOU MAY REGISTER ONLINE AT (Compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Edge, & Internet Explorer 10 Browsers only)

YOU MAY ALSO REGISTER BY TELEPHONE AT 915-831-7749 This conference provides a venue for regional veteran and disabled veteran owned businesses to make federal agencies—and their prime contractors - aware of their existence and capabilities. It further allows businesses of all socioeconomic categories to network and begin the development of business relationships. Historically this conference has been a resource for government agencies and contractors to extend their outreach to West Texas and its veteran business community. While this conference targets veteran or disabled veteran owned businesses the opportunity to network with potential business partners, teaming or joint venture partners can be advantageous.

Active duty military personnel that are about to transition to civilian life and have an interest in being entrepreneurs are encouraged to attend this conference. Organizations that assist in business development have been invited to participate
