What People Are Saying

"I have been participating in nationwide Federal Procurement Conferences for more than 15 years and Showorks events for more than 4 years nationwide and found the quality of leads/contacts made at the October 6, 2010 Showorks Greater DC Procurement Event to be the "best" ever. We really enjoy the Showorks events, love Bev K. and her warmups/followups and are registering for Baltimore 2010 and Atlantic City 2011 ASAP! Thanks Cathy and Teri for another great conference.Please have any first time registrants call me if they need any referral info. I think we have done 7or 8 of these events now since 2007 nationwide and we always get 10x20 times our exhibitor investment in new business minimum. I have never had a consistent ROI like that in any other procurement event anywhere!"

Trade Shows

Upcoming ALLIANCE Events

Each event averages 450 participants for each 1 day event.

We anticipate 1000 at our largest this year. The participants are eager and interested in doing business with government agencies, and nearly 40% are already selling to the government. They are focused on successful government contracting.

Planning Committee

We work closely in each region with federal, state and local agencies, local PTAC's and resource agencies to promote and plan the conference. Participating agencies generally include the US General Services Administration, US Small Business Administration, the US Dept of Housing and Urban Development, US Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Aviation Administration, US Navy, US Air Force and other Department of Defense agencies.

MatchMaking is the focus

We publish descriptions of each buying entity and list the types of businesses that they would like to meet. Small businesses will schedule their own meetings (on-line) with their top four or five choices. This begins about 2 weeks before each event.

The Format

Each event includes MatchMaking Meetings, Exhibit booths, Resource Tables (staffed by government and non-profit agencies that provide assistance to small businesses).

Success Stories

We like to highlight companies that are successful government contractors. During Opening Remarks and Luncheon Remarks we invite successful government contractors, small businesses, to describe what their successes AND mistakes have been when doing business with BIG business and government agencies. Small businesses like to know that it's possible to make this work!


The events include 90 minute workshops that provide an overview on subjects such as "How to be on the GSA Schedule and Why", "Tips from Contracting Officers" and "Resources Available to Small Businesses."

In-Depth Seminars

A second day has been added to some of the events that offer longer, more detailed information about "Getting on the Schedule" and "Contracting Officer Training". Most of the 3 and 4 hour sessions are included in the regular fee. One or two classes, however, have been added for an additional charge. They include a workbook, CD and in-depth training.

ShoWorks Inc, the producers of these events, is a Woman-Owned, Small Business that provides personal and quality service to all participants.
