NASA to Hold Symposium for Small Businesses
WASHINGTON -- NASA will host its second annual NASA/JPL Small Business Symposium and Awards Ceremony Nov. 16 and 17 at the Marriot Bethesda North Hotel and Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Rd., Bethesda, Md.

The Symposium provides a forum for attendees to learn about NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and agency plans for future missions in space and Earth science.

Attendees will learn about the skills, resources, and technologies needed to participate in the agency's missions, programs and research. Business-to-business networking with NASA, JPL and prime contractors will be the objective throughout the event. Participation in this symposium is open to industry, academia and small businesses. The registration deadline for the symposium is Nov. 9.

The two-day event will culminate with the NASA Small Business Industry and Advocates Awards Ceremony. The NASA Small Business Awards recognize outstanding contributions NASA employees and industry representatives have made in support of the agency's small business program.
