Tagence attended the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce’s 6th Annual NOVA B2G Matchmaking Conference & Small Business EXPO. Keynote speakers Antonio Doss, Director of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Washington Metropolitan Area District Office, and Kevin K. McAleenan, Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, shared trends in government procurement and encouraged small business to engage.
Matchmaking sessions that put small businesses in direct contact with government agencies and large businesses are the highlight of this event. Our own Jennifer M. Rhodes, Executive Vice President of Tagence, played an active role as co-chair of the B2G Steering committee with Dan Nathan of AOC Key Solutions, and was instrumental in bringing several agencies into the matchmaking event for the first time.
Thank you to Ashleigh Dorfman and the B2G Steering Committee for making this event such a success. A special thanks to Plenary speakers Pete Tseronis, Dots and Bridges, and Wayne Gatewood, The Gatewood Group for speaking on Emerging Trends in 2018 Government Contracting.
