The theme of the expo, which will be held at the University of Maryland's Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., is "Opportunities Knocking at Your Door" and is focused on showing companies how to access capital, propel their businesses, and build prime contractor/subcontractor relationships and learn about future business opportunities.

The expo will showcase local, small and minority firms in the county and throughout the region while actively helping firms build prime and subcontractor relationships. The focus is bringing to the table the key ingredients to helping your business grow.

Morning breakout panels include Procurement Opportunities Around the Region, Access to Capital and Resources, Legislative Updates – A Global View, and a "Meet The Primes" forum. There will also be an afternoon Business 2 Business Matchmaking Exchange, exhibitors' gallery and networking sessions.

The luncheon program will be headlined by Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker III and Gabrielle J. Williams, a teenage entrepreneur and author of Amazon #1 bestseller "The Making of a Young Entrepreneur."
