2015 Florida 8(a) Alliance Conference

Our 4th Annual Federal Contracting Conference was a success. There were over 240 people who attended. In addition to a new location, Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld, several new records were set which included 37 Vendors, 10 Government Agencies, 7 Large Primes and a tremendous amount of networking opportunities.


We also celebrated a wonderful milestone and partnership with the renewal of our Strategic Alliance Memorandum (SAM) agreement with SBA North Florida and South Florida Districts thanks to Willie Gonzales and Francisco "Pancho" Marrero and their district office teams.
