ADOT to hold Small and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Conference

Event provides business training and opportunities
August 22, 2018

PHOENIX – An Arizona Department of Transportation conference in late September will help owners of small businesses and those qualifying for ADOT’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program learn how to bid for projects and contracts.

The Statewide DBE & Small Business Conference, to be held Sept. 26-27 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort, will feature workshops, networking opportunities and one-on-one time with experts in areas such as banking, insurance and bonding, marketing and consulting. The goal: helping small businesses and those owned by members of socially and economically disadvantaged groups compete for transportation projects that receive federal funding.

With a theme of “Road to the Future,” most tracks at this year’s conference will focus on technology, innovation and ideas to help small businesses compete.

Although the conference is geared toward disadvantaged business enterprises and small businesses, it’s open to all businesses, public agencies, vendors and community partners with an interest in transportation.

Businesses interested in attending the conference can register and purchase tickets online at bit.ly/2MsBzby.
