The North Louisiana Matchmaker and Training Conference seeks to expand the visibility of Louisiana small businesses to the government contracting market. The main event will consist of an all-day reverse trade show where government agencies and large prime contractors will serve as exhibitors, giving our small business community the opportunity to interact with and market directly to the decision makers. This is also a chance for contracting officers to network with certified and qualified small businesses from the area to meet contracting goals. There will be speakers throughout the day allowing the small business attendees to learn more about contracting with various agencies and prime contractors as well as one-on-one matchmaking opportunities.

This event will benefit our local community by showing government buyers and prime contractors from across the nation that Louisiana small businesses have a wide range of products and services to offer.
