WHY ATTEND THE SUMMIT?
The Summit is the premier, best-established and most-recognized federal construction event in the Southeast- businesses who are already engaged or want to perform in the federal market need to be there!
“Program and Issues Dialogues” address future projects and acquisition strategies, contractor experiences, teaming and supplier opportunities and other issues related to acquisition and execution of projects at military bases and government throughout the Southeast. These sessions also include information on federal opportunities in environmental engineering and remediation, energy and horizontal infrastructure (including roads and intersections, water, wastewater, natural gas and other utilities)
Other Summit sessions address critical and timely topics, including supplier, service contract and public-private opportunities, small business programs and utilization, budget impacts, contracting processes and pre- and post-award legal issues for federal contractors
Summit “meet and greet” sessions allow businesses to meet one-on-one and market themselves to federal agencies that buy construction, public works, environmental and engineering services and products in VA, NC, SC, GA and FL.
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, pre-Summit networking opportunities on October 24 include a golf event hosted and organized by the Cape Fear Post of the Society of American Military Engineers, site visits at US Coast Guard Sector North Carolina and the North Carolina Port and an evening Summit Social at Ironclad Brewery in downtown Wilmington – a huge hit from 2011-2017!
