Stennis Space Center Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Industry Day

On February 3, 2015, NASA’s Office of Small Business Programs concluded another successful Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business Industry Day event hosted by the Stennis Space Center.

With over 300 attendees at the INFINITY Space Center, the Industry Day offered numerous opportunities for SDVOSB owners and representatives to network with government procurement decision makers, other large and small businesses and current NASA prime contractors. Despite the event title, the attendees included more than two hundred representatives from not only Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses, but also Veteran-Owned Small Businesses, Women-Owned Small Businesses, and HUBZone Businesses.

I look forward to the future where the relationships that were made at this event lead to contracts. We look forward to seeing you at our HUBZone Industry Day at Johnson Space Center on August 11, 2015.
