Below is the link to register for the upcoming DBE and Small Business Development Summit being held at the Delaware Technical and Community College (Terry Campus), DelOne Conference Center in Dover, Delaware on March 11, 2020 starting at 7:45 a.m.

This year's theme is RISE TO THE CHALLENGE and our objectives are:

  • to increase exposure of DBE's to prime contractors and to have the prime contractors expand their sub-consultant pool;
  • to promote new DelDOT programs/tools to DBE's; • to share best practices for DBE's trying to do business with the State; and,
  • to promote current project opportunities and provide networking opportunities with selected prime contractors

There is no cost for the event, but you must register to attend.

This year our Keynote Speaker is Dave Raymond, author of The Power of Fun and the original Phillie Phanatic. Fellow Delawarean and son of late Delaware Blue Hens Hall of Fame coach Tubby Raymond, Dave’s presentation promises to deliver his best inspirational stories of his performance career and will outline his simple model - a theory about fun - that can change your life.

Networking – Meet the Primes, prospective mentors, partners, and clients - Gain access to the necessary resources that will foster your businesses development.

This year we anticipate a phenomenal line-up for our list of participating Primes to be available for this powerful networking session. We are so confident of the positive outcome, that DBEs must register and schedule appointments to participate in this session. During this time, DBEs and Primes will have an opportunity for private conversations, exchange of information, and discuss opportunities. This will be our best event yet!

We look forward to seeing you there!
