Event Detail

Take part in the 2023 National Veterans Small Business Engagement! This engagement is one of the most significant business-networking events for Veteran-Owned Small Businesses and firms in other socio-economic categories. This highly requested event will occur at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) forecasted contract prospects in facilities supplies and services (e.g., construction), medical supplies and services, information technology and professional services will be showcased by program managers. As in previous years, industry supply diversity managers and other government agencies can attend to network with entrepreneurs. The NVSBE presents a unique and valuable opportunity for Procurement Decision Makers (PDM) to connect with Veteran-Owned Small Businesses, and small and disadvantaged firms.

All registrants will be first directed to the Department of Veterans Affairs’ AccessVA single entry point for access to the online registration. AccessVA will allow registrants to securely access the VA’s VetBiz Portal and authenticate their profile. Access to the site will require the use of one of four credential providers

Once authenticated, registrants will automatically be redirected to the event registration system to complete their registration and profile for NVSBE 2023.
