Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce Hosts 15th Annual Procurement Conference

U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen and GSA Administrator Emily Murphy Among 80+ Speakers

ROCKVILLE, MD: On Friday, May17, 2019, the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce’s GovConNet will host its 15th Annual Pathway to Growth Procurement Conference – the region’s largest small business procurement conference. The Procurement Conference takes place from 7:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at The Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville, Maryland.

Business leaders seeking a competitive advantage on winning federal, state, and local government contracts have a unique opportunity to gain access and make meaningful connections with key leaders and experts in government and industry. At the Procurement Conference, you can achieve six months of business in six hours.

According to Conference Media Sponsor Bloomberg Government, government contractors in Montgomery County won $8.5 billion in federal contracts last year — $3.3 billion of which was awarded to small business.

“As evidenced by the Bloomberg data, Montgomery County businesses that respond to government procurements win big,” said Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Georgette “Gigi” Godwin. “We accelerate the success of small businesses by providing them with an impactful conference that creates opportunities to meet with and learn from thought leaders and other small businesses.”

This year’s conference opens with a Plenary Session; U.S. General Services Administrator Emily Murphy will provide keynote remarks for attendees. As Honorary Chair of the Procurement Conference, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen will provide remarks from his unique perspective as a national policy leader. Senator Van Hollen is serving in his 15th year as Honorary Chair.
