Be Educated. Be Connected. Be Inspired.
Join us for ABAOC’s most anticipated marquee event — the ABAOC BizCon: Business Convention. Continuing with the excellence of last year’s event, we have brought back several elements to the program that are sure to provide great value to business owners and professionals seeking to transform their business. The program proper features a fascinating panel of speakers, set against the backdrop of our Business Expo and capped-off with last year’s hit, the Mayoral Fast Pitch.
The keystone of BizCon is the opportunity for qualified Small, Minority and Veteran Owned Businesses to be matched-up and interview with prospective public/private sector “buyers” during the “BizMatch” Strategic Matchmaking Sessions. This is a GREAT opportunity for any business to establish a direct-line channel to doing business at the corporate and government level.
Just Remember: You need to purchase your ticket to the overall BizCon to participate in BizMatch!
Diversity, procurement and legislative panel of experts will talk about contracts, certification, legislation and business trends in OC.
Qualified Small, Minority and Veteran Owned Businesses will have the opportunity to present their business to Purchasing, Procurement, Contract Management and Supplier Diversity Prefessionals.
The inspirational panel will share their success stories of reaching New Heights in business.
BizCon Business Convention & Expo
A staple of our annual Business Convention is the Business Expo room, where exhibitors come to showcase their companies products, services and capabilities. It’s a great way to bring some visibility to your business, especially when many in the crowd are representatives from major public and private corporations/agencies.
As in years passed, we bring back a popular part of our program with the Inspirational Panel. We’ve lined up an impressive story for you, sure to give you a sense that as a business owner have been others like you that have faced similar challenges and come out successful. Stay tuned for the official announcement!
Diversity & Procurement Panel
