We appreciate your participation in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Direct Access Program events and previous National Veterans Conferences. VA is committed to bring to NVSBE more than 350 VA procurement decision makers (senior executives, program managers, and contracting staff). We have also invited procurement decision makers (PDMs) from 16 additional federal agencies and over 60 major corporations who seek to do business with Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (VOSBs).

In FY 2014, VA spent $17.6 billion in contracts with 22.3 percent going to Veteran-Owned Small Businesses. More importantly, 23% of VOSBs who attended the 2013 event in St. Louis received awards in FY 2014 totaling $562 million. If you want to increase your opportunity to compete for that business, you need to be in Atlanta!

NVSBE is an investment that creates returns! Our approach at this year’s Engagement is to directly match PDM requirements with your capabilities; and enable you to personally engage with PDMs and commercial customers to enhance your chances of winning procurement contracts. The 2014 NVSBE is all about access. At NVSBE, you will:

  • Learn about 2015–2016 procurement requirements at Business Requirements Sessions
  • Discuss your capabilities and address specific business requirements directly with PDMs at Networking Roundtables
  • Build personal relationships with potential customers and business partners during Dining with Decision Makers and Plenary Lunch sessions
  • Expand your networking opportunities at informal industry-sponsored receptions

Join us! NVSBE takes place December 9-11, 2014, at the Georgia World Congress Center, in Atlanta, Ga.

We look forward to providing you with an unprecedented level of engagement at NVSBE. For more information, visit Email your feedback and questions to
