About the C-CAP Industry Days Expo

You’ve heard a lot of experts say that small business is the backbone America. We know this factually, with all of the numbers and the statistics. But on a more human level, we want to be able to make a difference in the lives of small business owners.

We want to inspire and provide resources to allow innovation to exponentially influence the world regardless of company size. We want to share ideas and enthusiasm so that the best and brightest in the America. can have a fair chance to present their best. To provide an audience who will listen and believe in the power of one.

The California Contracting/Acquisition/Procurement Small Business Expo bridges small business and government agencies to make connecting easier. It is important to us to find new companies who have the talent and the passion to serve, but haven’t quite managed to get a foot in the door.

By partnering with procurement professionals who are truly looking for a diverse and vibrant portfolio of suppliers, CCAP Small Business Expo provides a golden opportunity for you to share your vision and your commitment to excellence to be an important part of the business ecosystem in the United States.

The highlight of the expo will be a special presentation of the 2017 NAWCWD Long Range Acquisition Forecast (LRAF) where attendees will have a first-hand experience in the delivery of the LRAF information.

An extended option of opportunities will be with state and other federal agencies for those small businesses who may need to develop their sales cycle before competing on larger contracts. California Go-Biz representatives and regional partners will participate the event.
