I had an opportunity to attend Alliance South on Thursday, May 22nd, 2014 in College Park, Georgia. For those who were unable to attend, you missed an exceptional opportunity. The Matchmaking Sessions were powerful with each organization representative eager to help, support and guide. Exhibit booths served as additional resources outside of the Matchmaking Sessions. The morning breakout sessions were 'second to none', with each diverse speaker, sharing his or her story on how they were able to successfully break through countless racial, economic and cultural barriers. Attendees walked away engaged, enlightened and empowered. The staff was friendly, helpful and professional. I look forward to attending the next event!

Keep in mind -- This is a tool in the procurement process.Do NOT expect to win a contract on-site. Ask
pertinent questions and learn what that agencies and contractors are looking for
and what you need to do to qualify.
A primary challenge for businesses is to be aware of current regulations and guidelines. This conference provides opportunities to meet buyers and contracting officers from major military bases, the surrounding states and large companies to discuss business opportunities. Educational sessions will provide current information on emerging new standards and provide you with the tools to bid and contract successfully, gain valuable information and share success stories. This is your opportunity as a supplier to identify potential new contracting sources and network with buyers and other attendees.
Make hundreds of face-to-face contacts in one day
Receive contact information for buyers and contracting officers
Meet companies that could potentially become "partners" in preparing proposals and contracts
"I just did months worth of work in only 8 hours!" - Tammy S.
"There is no way I could have connected with the quality of people I did today on my own. I met decision makers from companies I've been trying to reach and got all the information I need to start winning new contracts." - Brad H.
