Federal Contracts for Newcomers at CelebrAsian Procurement & Business Conference 2018

180327 Fed For Newcomers

Federal government agencies who are among the highest volume buyers of products and services from small and minority businesses, will share the nuts and bolts in federal contracting with newcomers on May 30 in Bethesda, Maryland. About 25% of the $350 Billion federal contracts are expected to be spent in this business community.

“Federal Contracts for Newcomers” will be a “what, where, when, who and how” town hall-style event designed for small, women and minority suppliers. The Federal government purchases nearly everything – from dog food to furniture, marketing to construction, office supplies to technology, staffing to logistics, and so much more, in order to run the government nationwide and around the world.

The U.S. Departments of Energy, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, and Education; U.S. Agency for International Development; General Services Administration; and Federal financial regulatory agencies such as Security & Exchange Commission, FDIC, and Office of Controller of the Currency will be on hand to show the way.

The town hall is part of CelebrAsian Procurement & Business Conference, “Smart World: How Businesses Transform to Meet Change,” which runs May 29 to June 1, 2018 at Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center. It is the national flagship event of the USPAACC (US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation).

Through innovative and first-to-market programs, CelebrAsian, the national flagship conference of USPAACC (US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation), will provide a vital platform for the exchange of market intelligence, best practices, proven strategies, and opportunities.

PepsiCo Chairman & CEO Indra K. Nooyi is Conference Chair. She will hold a fireside chat to share her journey from India to Fortune magazine’s #2 “Most Powerful Woman in Business” at the Excellence Awards Dinner. Leading the roster of corporate co-chairs is PepsiCo, whose continued partnership with USPAACC helps to advance growth among Pan Asian American and diverse businesses.

Strong support from the financial industry – Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo – and automotive company Nissan – show the value and ROI they place in their commitment to USPAACC.

Similarly, co-chairing the Conference are established Pan Asian American businesses – Ampcus, Indotronix Avani, and Pyramid Consulting – who appreciate what USPAACC does for the Pan Asian American business community nationwide.

CelebrAsian serves as the nation’s premier venue for procurement opportunities, innovation and job growth for the more than 2 million Pan Asian American-owned businesses nationwide with annual revenue that surpass $700 billion and continue to grow.
