Matchmaking Process

Live Attendee: At the start of the session, Agencies / Primes will introduce themselves. You then meet with any of the agencies/primes in which you have an interest in doing business. There are no sign-up sheets or bells and whistles. You are allowed 5 minutes – or longer if there is no line behind you. If you are patient, you will have the opportunity to meet with everyone. Make sure to prioritize the list of Agencies/Primes with whom you wish to meet and bring your one-page capabilities statement and business cards.

Virtual Attendee: Registrants will receive an informal survey via email from notify@uswcc.org (please add to your address book) that will include capabilities statements, NAICS, Agency / Prime meeting priorities, and more.  Prior to the event, registrants will receive links to their on-line meeting rooms.  Each session will be for 10 minutes. Please be prepared to share your elevator pitch and provide solutions to the agencies/primes with which you are meeting. If you wish to take part in the matchmaking sessions, we require you to complete this survey no later than Wednesday, 4/10/2024 at 5:00 PM EST. Failure to complete the survey will result in your inability to have matchmaking appointments.
