Government Procurement Conference 2011 Announced

Government Procurement Conference 2011

Finally, the day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived!!

Okay… maybe it’s just the day we here at Cross Timbers Procurement Center, TMAC, the Small Business Development Center for Enterprise Excellence and the University of Texas at Arlington have been anxiously awaiting since August 12, 2010 – but we couldn’t be more excited about this year’s Government Procurement Conference.

Our goals this year are lofty – 1200 attendees; 200 exhibitors; 20+ educational workshops all at the same great quality we’ve provided for the last 15 years! Can you believe it? Our 15th anniversary will be the best conference yet, I can feel it.

Will you help us reach our goals?

The time has come for you to sign up and share the details with your network. Cross Timbers Procurement Center has made it really easy to “socialize” through Facebook, Twitter (#gpcdfw), LinkedIn and Flickr (do you have photos from last year to share?).

Don’t keep this exciting news to yourself! Get out there (Register) and share today.
