Thank you for your interest in the B.I.G. Event (Booming oilfields, International trade, Government contracting) scheduled to take place at the Solomon P. Ortiz Center on Wednesday, August 15, 2012.
There seem to be many Eagle Ford Shale-focused events in recent months, but this one is truly unique. The Small Business Development Center, along with other area partners, has put this together. The whole event will focus on new market opportunities for existing small businesses ready to expand in new directions.
In an effort to make this a real win-win for both attendees and exhibitors alike, we’re targeting specific high-demand trade, product and service providers. Some of those areas include Welders, Frac Sand Haulers, Oil Haulers, Delivery Services, Power washing/pipe cleaning, Environmental Services, Catering, Engineers, Geologists, Accountants, etc. However, all existing businesses are welcome to attend and pursue opportunities in the three key areas: Oil field, International Trade and Government Contracting.
The half-day event will include key presentations by industry leaders in all three areas, unveiling of the latest EFS Economic Impact Study from UTSA, a choice of fifteen different seminars, a reverse trade show where businesses can visit one-on-one with procurement representatives and an industry-specific networking opportunity.
The low cost for attendance is a direct result of significant support from SBA Jobs Act funds made available for this event. We look forward to moving the entire Coastal Bend forward; taking advantage of tremendous growth opportunities for local small businesses. For more information or to register today, click here.
