Business Expo Promises Vendors Networking Opportunities
Business leaders interested in learning more about government contracting and what local and national vendors have to offer will not want to miss the Business Opportunities Expo 2003 on Tuesday, Oct. 21. The Expo will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Cruise Terminal No. 4 at Port Canaveral.

The annual trade show - sponsored by the NASA/Kennedy Space Center Small Business Council, 45th Space Wing and Canaveral Port Authority - will feature 150 business and government exhibitors, some from Brevard and others from across the country.

Exhibitors will include vendors from a variety of product and service areas, including computer technology, communication equipment/services, construction, and safety products. Representatives of NASA, the 45th Space Wing, prime contractors, Spaceport Florida Authority, and many more will be available to give out information and answer specific questions about doing business with their respective organizations. Admission is free and open to the public. For more detailed information, go to the following website at

NASA's Central Industry Assistance Office provides support to small businesses that want to do business at KSC. That office works with the NASA/KSC Small Business Council - which consists of United Space Alliance, The Boeing Co., Space Gateway Support and Dynacs Engineering Inc. - to help small businesses learn how to navigate in the world of government contracting. By co-sponsoring the Expo, the Council helps provide a one-stop environment for buyers and sellers. Both sides benefit.
