Vermont businesses are invited to attend the 2019 New England Region Matchmaker on April 25-26, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Portland, Maine. Matchmakers are a unique opportunity for small businesses to connect with federal, state, local government agencies, and large prime contractors. The Vermont Procurement Technical Assistance Center (VT PTAC) will be on site to offer assistance. “By attending matchmaker events, businesses make substancial connections that typically lead to successful government contracting careers.”, said VT PTAC director, Joanne Spaulding.
VT PTAC will be hosting two workshops on Thursday, April 11, 2019 in Randolph, Vermont to help businesses prepare for the Maine Matchmaker:
