The Hanford Small Business Council (HSBC) and the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce are working to announce the dates for the 17th Annual Bridging Partnerships Small Business Symposium to be held April 2021, at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick, Washington.

Why Attend Bridging Partnerships?

The primary goal of this symposium is to bring professionals from both small and large businesses together under one roof to network, learn, and build relationships that lead to increased procurement and other business opportunities for small businesses.

“If you want to play in the Hanford Market, the Bridging Partnership Small Business Symposium can help you get there.  From collaboration, to networking, to navigating the supplier processes; this conference is a great event for both large and small businesses alike.” ~TradeWind Services LLC

“The Bridging Partnerships event is one of the single greatest assemblies of business owners and industry leaders in the Tri-Cities area. The business networking opportunities provided at this single event propelled us into positive relationships with Fortune 500 companies and various industry leaders, and participation in the 2-day BP Conference resulted in more positive new relationships than three months of active marketing and networking effort on our own.” ~Arthur Baranovskiy, Founder and CEO at AYB Drafting 

“I’ve attended the Bridging Partnerships Conference in 2018 and 2019, and have realized direct positive benefits to my business from both events.  The BP conference has been consistently effective in bringing small businesses, interested in doing business at Hanford, together with DOE and the Hanford Prime Contractors, and with the programs and organizations that assist small businesses.  Of particular value for my business, McCormack Consulting, have been the partnering arrangements that I’ve made with other small businesses to collaborate on Hanford Opportunities that are too large and complex for an individual small business to tackle.” ~David McCormack, McCormack Consulting

Your presence and participation helps to make this event successful, productive, and fun!
