Any business interested in succeeding in the government marketplace should have Alliance Northwest on their calendar.

The event attracts over 850 attendees including the who’s-who of federal contracting. Alliance NW is the premier government contracting event in the region, bringing together prime contractors, government agencies and small businesses for a full day of relationship building.

For those firms who are experienced government contractors, Alliance NW is the place to strengthen established relationships, explore other government contracting opportunities and teaming opportunities, and hear the marketplace’s latest news and trends from the expert workshop speakers.

If you're new to government contracting, you’ll have an opportunity to meet government agency representatives, explore sub-contracting opportunities with prime contractors and attend high-quality training workshops.
