Exhibitors and Sponsors – Upcoming Conference

Sponsor APTAC’s 2021 Fall Training Conference, November 8-11, 2021

This will be a LIVE Conference with Virtual Option where you can network with over 300 APTAC procurement professionals.


Why Sponsor the APTAC Conference?

The Association of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (APTAC) is the professional organization of and for the DoDs Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTAC) nationwide. APTAC supports PTACs by providing important information, professional networking, comprehensive training and a voice in national government contracting assistance. This conference marks a special milestone for the Association and PTACs as administration of the Program transitions to DOD OSBP on October 1, 2021. The conference will highlight the benefits of this transition.

Ninety-five PTACs – with over 300 local offices – form a network of dedicated procurement professionals assisting government agencies and large primes to meet their contracting goals by preparing small businesses to compete successfully in the government marketplace.

Put your organization front and center as you engage with the only Association dedicated to Procurement Technical Assistance Center professionals. Our hybrid conference gives agencies and primes the opportunity to promote supplier diversity programs, and learn how PTACs can partner and assist in meeting contracting goals.

COVID POLICY:  It is our goal to provide a safe meeting for all attendees.  We will be observing DC Guidelines for the Conference.  Currently, DC requires the use of masks for indoor events (except when eating or drinking).

Attendees will be required to have proof of vaccination, such as a vaccine card or digital vaccine passport, indicating the attendee is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Attendees can also provide proof of a negative test result from a COVID-19 test obtained within three days of arrival at the conference venue. No exceptions will be made. Individuals unable to provide the required documentation should update their registration to virtual-only option. We expect to use a third party to validate these requirements prior to check-in at the in-person event.

APTAC is committed to a successful and productive conference and adhering to these common-sense instructions, while inconvenient, is necessary under present conditions.
