INPUT Seminar Provides Actionable Information to Hundreds of Businesses

HP Solutions, Inc. cosponsored an information-sharing and networking seminar that highlighted approaches companies can use to either maximize their chances of securing federal service contracts or forming partnerships with contractors who do.

Entitled “How to Craft and Execute a Winning Strategy,” the teaming seminar brought together more than 200 officials from the government technology contracting community and executives from small and large firms to hear presentations and network. The half-day seminar took place at the Ritz Carlton in McLean, VA, in August.

“The seminar brought together vendors and government officials from the government technology contracting community to share timely, educational and actionable information on highest-priority topics,” said Laura Lovell-Scercy, president and CEO of HP Solutions. “I decided to cosponsor it because I knew it would provide an excellent opportunity for hundreds of businesses to gain visibility in the vendor and government community and build strong relationships with government executives.“

This was the latest in a series of seminars cosponsored by HP Solutions. The firm was recently selected as one of the “top 100 women-owned businesses” and “top 100 diversity-owned businesses” in New Jersey by DiversityBusiness.com, the nation’s largest organization of diversity-owned businesses.
