WHY ATTEND THE FEDCON SUMMIT?

  • The FEDCON Summit is the premier, best-established and most-recognized federal construction event in North Carolina – businesses who are already engaged or want to perform in the federal market need to be there!
  • Installation and agency “Program and Issues Dialogue” sessions will address future projects, acquisition strategies and issues related to procurement and execution of projects at military bases and facilities in NC and SC
  • Other Summit sessions will address critical and timely topics, including small business programs and utilization, budget impacts, contracting processes and pre-award, post-award and legal issues in federal construction and engineering contracting
  • Summit “speed networking” sessions allow businesses to meet one-on-one and market themselves to representatives of every federal agency that procures construction- and engineering-related services in NC and SC, including DoD, US Coast Guard, VA, GSA Public Buildings Service, etc.
  • Summit networking and trade show activities allow businesses to market their services and products to over 700 general contractors, specialty contractors, engineers, architects and suppliers
  • In addition to the Summit on October 11, networking opportunities with all FEDCON attendees include a pre-Summit social on October 10, riverside adjacent to the Wilmington Convention Center – a huge hit in 2011!
