Small Business Forum Details

The Small Business Forum is a free annual event hosted by Fairfax County created to provide a forum for small businesses to interact directly with county procurement representatives. Hosted in conjunction with the Fairfax County Small Business Commission, the Small Business Forum provides an intimate and interactive setting for suppliers to:

  • Network with Fairfax County departments and business support organizations
  • Discover marketing and business fundamentals that can help grow your company
  • Explore alternative options for funding your business
  • Learn how to properly and effectively pursue work with Fairfax County

The Reverse Tradeshow is the heart of the Small Business Forum where Fairfax County departments and business support organizations are ready to discuss suppliers’ capabilities and their requirements face to face. This is a great opportunity to make procurement decision makers aware of suppliers’ offerings as they look to expand their network. View the List of Exhibitors.

 

Speakers and panel discussions are scheduled prior to the reverse trade show offering insights and professional advice from experts and business leaders from varied fields.
