Participating Competitive Edge Conference Committee Members


For over 20 years, the Competitive Edge Conference has linked the region’s small businesses with leading decision-makers from the public and private sectors. The conference serves as a platform for small businesses to network and learn about new procurement practices and strategies. New vendors learn first-hand how to become certified and how to access mentorship opportunities. Businesses leave the conference with a plethora of knowledge they can later implement to increase their company’s growth. 


Now in its 25th year, the one-day event sponsored by several public agencies, authorities and private corporations in New York focuses on “The Competitive Edge: MWLDBEs and SDVOBs Winning in NYS”. The Conference agenda will focus on assisting firms to enhance their business skills and obtain access to contracting opportunities throughout New York State estimated at $30 billion.
