The Broward County Office of Economic and Small BusinessDevelopment (OESBD) presented “FY 2016 Capital Projects and Contracting Opportunities”, its final event in the 2015 Business Development workshop series on Wednesday, October 7 at the Broward County Governmental Center.
The free event provided useful information about forthcoming County projects that could mean potential business opportunities for firms – both big and small.
Successfully engaging over 250 attendees, the workshop featured welcome remarks from Broward County Vice Mayor Martin Kiar, District 1 Commissioner, and detailed presentations from representatives of 10 County agencies (Aviation, Cultural, Parks and Recreation, Port Everglades, Public Works, Purchasing and Transit).
“This office works hard to support the local business community through our services and programs,” said Sandy-Michael McDonald, OESBD Director. “We are constantly building partnerships and creating initiatives that will aid in developing firms and guiding them to success in Broward and beyond.”
To keep up the momentum, OESBD invites the business community to attend a Meet & Greet informational and networking event on Wednesday, October 28th from 3 to 6 PM at the Broward County Main Library in Fort Lauderdale.
Hosted by Hunt/Moss, a Joint Venture, in conjunction with D. Stephenson Construction, Inc., the outreach event will inform attendees about the $239 million renovation project of Southwest Airlines Terminal One at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
Since additional prime contractors are being recruited for participation, the event will begin with a special session from 3 to 4 PM for prime contractors only and will proceed with a joint session for primes and subcontractors from 4 to 6 PM.
