The 2018 Midwest Government Contracting Symposium is in its 11th year in the Quad Cities.  This event has evolved over the years from a focus on small business towards a focus on all businesses interested in government opportunities. It has become the single most important conference for all businesses to gain insider knowledge and tools to best prepare them for government opportunities with organizations on the Rock Island Arsenal.  Companies and Government agencies attend to share information on the current issues surrounding government contracting. Expert panels comprised of industry and government personnel will share real world scenarios and best practices; and small businesses, government agencies, and government prime contractors have the opportunity to network and connect to identify business opportunities.

This two-day event will not only provide the Advanced Planning Briefing for Industry for organizations located on the Rock Island Arsenal, but will also be an opportunity to learn and connect in ways that will help businesses acquire the skills and information they need to increase revenues and goals.
