Why do Small and Large Businesses attend NDIA Navy Gold Coast?

Answer: Opportunity to Learn, Network, Team and GROW YOUR BUSINESS!

Tammie Rippie, Senior Subcontract Administrator shares why Amec Foster Wheeler has participated as an Exhibitor at Navy Gold Coast for the past seven years:

"The Navy Gold Coast Small Business Procurement Event is a large national conference that focuses on Small Business and offers informative presentations.

My job is mainly subcontracts, but I also support our Small Business Liaison Officer with small business outreach. The Navy Gold Coast conference is the perfect venue for small business outreach because the event draws a large crowd of small businesses. We are always looking to expand our list of contacts; identify new small business firms, make connections with small businesses that want to work with us, network with subs that are currently working with us or have worked with us in the past. I am determined to make a connection with the small business subs that I meet, whether it is sending them an RFP, awarding them a new contract, or even just introducing them to other Amec Foster Wheeler employees for potential future opportunities.
