In 1999, USPAACC introduced the 1-on-1 Prescheduled Business Match-Making Program to bring together Asian American businesses, corporations and government agencies, in order to increase the success rate and opportunities for Asian Americans in the procurement market.
Since then, the program has successfully linked thousands of large, medium and small businesses to major corporations and federal, state, and local government agencies, leading to contract awards. This event was so innovative and unique to the market when first introduced that it has since been replicated by other national organizations of similar goals.
The 1-on-1 Prescheduled Business Match-making Meetings take place annually during the CelebrAsian Procurement Conference. The meetings are held on the 3rd day of the event, during the Guanxi Supplier Opportunity Fair, where approximately 600 meetings take place throughout the day.
