The 3rd Annual FDOT DBE & SBE Winter Expo takes place virtually on Wednesday, 16 February, from 9 am to 1 pm (EST). This is a no-fee event to attend and focuses on disadvantaged (women, minority, veteran) and small businesses who want to learn how to do business with the Florida Department of Transportation.
As we regularly point out regarding supplier diversity opportunities, do not automatically think that your company's products and services are not a good fit for this agency. Along with construction contracts, FDOT is an agency that also contracts for many administrative and other technical products and services. Additionally, small businesses involved in Government contracting often outsource for business services like accounting, finances, marketing, legal services, payroll, employee benefits, etc.
This virtual expo offers:
- Networking with Fellow Business Owners
- Connecting with Prime Contractors and Agency Contacts
- Learning about Upcoming FDOT Projects
- Attending Practical Training Sessions
