Thank you for your interest in the Del Mar College Small Business Development Center's - The B.I.G.Event (Booming industry, International trade, Government contracting) scheduled to take place at the Del Mar College Center for Economic Development on Wednesday, August 9, 2017. Even though things may have slowed down in the oilfield, there are still abundant opportunities in the Coastal Bend. That is what this event is all about! Carve some time out of your busy schedule to work “on” your business instead of “in” your business for a few hours and find new customers!

Big businesses and government entities consistently seek to improve their bottom line. Come explore the many possibilities and opportunities to support a truly global representation of new industries, and meet key personnel face to face. The BIG event will include great networking opportunities, presentations on the four main topics, and networking and growth opportunities to sell your business products or services to the vendors who need you as much as you need them. Lunch is also included with your registration.

We are pleased to announce that the event will feature presenters from Gulf Coast Growth Ventures, General Services Administration (GSA), and the Department of Commerce as well as other notable presenters. Over 300 people joined us in 2016! We look forward to moving the entire Coastal Bend forward with this 6th annual event, taking advantage of tremendous growth opportunities for local small businesses. (Please be sure to note that we have changed the venue for our BIG event this year) See you on August 9th!
