The Agenda is Getting Full!    
New for this year is a social networking website.  Since there is so much value in networking, we thought that we would provide a way for companies to meet and interact PRIOR to the conference.  As you register, you will be prompted to join our interactive website. In a "Facebook" like system, you will be able to contact other companies you may have interest engaging.  Set up appointments if you like.  Plan to meet.  Do business now with companies you would not ordinarily have an occasion to meet!  (If you have already registered and are not participating in the website, you may still go back and edit your registration.)  Read what one participant has to say:  
"Thank you for setting up the interactive website for the SBIR National Conference.  I have been  following all of the new attendees each week that have signed up and have my first meeting setup for this upcoming week.  It has been very interesting to see the variety of companies and services taking part in this years' conference."

The SBIR Program Has Been Under the Gun

Now more than ever it is important to show your support for your program.  Nothing shows support more than showing up and demonstrating your commitment.  If you have won before and are still undecided about coming you will be missing out on a great conference that provides ACCESS to global companies, small businesses, investors, federal laboratories, universities, and of course all 11 SBIR agencies.  All three days have important presentations, workshops, networking events and partnering/commercialization opportunities. Frankly, it's the cheapest possible way a company can network with small, medium and large companies, agencies, laboratories, universities -- all under one roof.

Check out Day Three: There is a strong Aerospace program on Day 3 There is also a half-day track on healthcare that should not be missed.  NASA will be featuring their programs.  Smart Energy will also be the topic of a half-day workshop.  More

Check out some of our Pre-Conference Workshops.  One you may have overlooked is "Using Aerospace Market Intelligence for Profit - Presented by Embry-Riddle's Center for Aviation and Aerospace Leadership"

What Will be Covered:  The emphasis will be on manufacturing, and will include comparisons of hundreds of firms by product, service and performance for both military and commercial markets. Based on an extensive analysis of economic and financial data, this workshop will also address the outlook for the future.  If you are concerned about the state of the aerospace industry, you will not want to miss this event. Join us at this pre-conference workshop and become part of a national mission to restore our aerospace industrial base.

What Participants Receive: All will receive a booklet of detailed data on aerospace manufacturing in New England, and a copy of the Aerospace Economic Report and Outlook for 2010.  This is a $60 value.

Perfect Your Pitch

Join us for a Full Day pre-conference workshop facilitated by Kathy McAfee, America’s Marketing Motivator. Kathy will introduce you to new tools and techniques that will help you plan, design and deliver your next presentation with greater results!
The Challenge: You have a great new technology that will solve problems and create new opportunities. But you are unsure how to communicate that idea and present your data in a manner that will engage your audience and motivate them to action -- without all the PowerPoint clutter.
The Solution: Learn the essential fundamentals of "high engagement presentations" and reduce your reliance on PowerPoint and other technical crutches that reduce your impact. Discover the many creative ways that you can communicate your key message and leave your audience wanting more. More
