Navigating the bureaucracy of government can be a daunting task. Successfully selling your products in the multi-billion dollar government market can be even scarier, but it doesn’t have to be. U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is inviting Wyoming small businesses to come to the 2012 GRO-Biz Conference and Idea Expo and learn the secrets for contracting your services and products with the federal government.

Enzi said businesses will have the opportunity to go beyond the basics with innovative workshops and networking opportunities for small businesses to succeed in selling their service, supplies, or construction to the Bureau of Land Management, Veteran’s Administration, the Department of Defense and other branches of government.

The GRO-Biz Conference and Idea Expo will be held in Laramie at the Hilton Garden Inn, February 22-23. It is open to government contracting beginners and veterans alike. The conference offers workshops and networking with more than 50 federal and state government agency representatives.

“Wyoming small businesses have the world’s largest consumer coming to their own
backyard, looking for new partners to contract with. The potential for growth is endless,” said Enzi, a member of the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee.

Registration is $165 for participants who register by Feb. 12 and $185 for participants who register Feb. 13 and after.
