OSMBA Business forum & Trade Fair

It's that time of year again! The Governor's Office of Small & Minority Business Assistance's (OSMBA) Business Forum and Trade Fair will be held at the Columbia Conference Center in Columbia on March 24, 2010. Our co-hosts for the event are the State Procurement Services Division and the Procurement Procedures Committee. OSMBA appreciates the continued support of both organizations and the members of SCAGPO.  In an effort to reduce the amount of documents created and printed, we now offer through our website and SCAGPO a link for on-line registration for the forum: http://osmbatradefair.eventbrite.com 

As usual, there is no charge for agency procurement officials and staff to attend the event. Space is limited; however, requests for an exhibit booth for your agency can be emailed to me no later than February 23rd.  Upon request, we can also provide event sponsorship information to you.

This event has been a success from year to year because of your continued support of not only our efforts, but also of South Carolina's small, minority and women-owned businesses. Procurement professionals are asked to make themselves available to network and answer questions. We ask that you bring plenty of your business cards and any pertinent information on how to do business with your agency. 

Your involvement is appreciated, as this effort to build stronger business foundations and promote economic prosperity throughout South Carolina can only be accomplished by establishing partnerships amongst vendors, the public, and private sectors. 

Your participation is important!
