Small Business Conference

Welcome to the 16th Annual U.S. Department of Energy Small Business Forum & Expo!

The Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Small & Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU), is proud to present the 16th Annual DOE Small Business Forum & Expo at the Sheraton Kansas City at Crown Center in Kansas City, MO, May 16-18, 2017.

The event will feature educational workshops, a large Exhibit Hall, as well as business one-on-one matchmaking sessions. Over 1,000 attendees will represent all levels of Federal, state, and local government agencies, the small business community, large/prime contractors, and many more!

The OSDBU goal is to provide maximum practicable opportunities in the Departments’ acquisitions to all small business concerns. The OSDBU created this three-day event to connect small businesses with various DOE offices and programs to enhance DOE’s overall mission of ensuring America’s security and prosperity by:

  • Strengthen and sustaining America’s Energy Independence
  • Introducing new innovations in areas of Science and Engineering
  • Enhancing nuclear security through defense, nonproliferation, and environmental efforts

DOE2017 will provide you with the information needed to help you navigate through the largest civilian agency within the Federal government. General and breakout sessions will include a variety of contracting and business subjects for various DOE representatives and industry experts.

DOE2017 is a great opportunity for small business owners to learn from the experts and network with DOE representatives, small business program managers, and prime contractors working within DOE.
