Media Contact: Dave Costello, 815-921-4516The Illinois Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) at Rock Valley College, together with the City of Rockford, Rockford Mass Transit (RMTD), Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), Illinois Tollway, and PNC Bank are hosting a free business-to-business exchange on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 from 8:00 a.m. until noon at the Rock Valley College Woodward Technology Center (WTC).
The purpose of this Business to Business Exchange, entitled Get on Board, A Business Exchange for Construction Industry Professionals is to connect DBE's (disadvantaged business enterprises), minority, and women business owners as well as other small business owners seeking work on Rockford's new Multi-Modal Transportation Center with prime contractors in A&E and construction. Attendees will have a chance to network with government procurement professionals and viable partners on upcoming construction projects along with gaining valuable knowledge on the DBE certification process.
"This venture is something all the hosting parties are very excited about," states RMTD Grants Specialist Paula Hughes. "We held an event similar to this in 2010 and it was met with great success. With all of the new projects on the horizon, we believe that it is time to host another such workshop. There are a lot of steps the small business owner needs to know including how to develop viable partnerships with construction industry leaders and how to become certified as a DBE. This seminar will allow for those issues and many other questions to be addressed."
The seminar will include several breakout sessions throughout the morning and there will be a vendor area where attendees can visit booths and make important face-to-face contacts. Please register at www.rockvalleycollege.edu/ptac.
