Event Specifics: 
As part of this year’s 9th Annual Home, Garden & Business Expo the SUNY Canton Small Business Development Center will be hosting a Buy Local Matchmaker 
This is an event where businesses can connect with one another  to identify opportunities for contracting, cooperative partnerships and referrals.  
Matchmaking is like 'Speed-dating'. Participants will sign up for 10 minute meetings with the contacts of their choice and have that short time to network and share marketing materials. When the bell rings, participants move to the next table.   
There are Two Ways to Participate…. 
As a Prime Agency / Contractor / Purchasing Officer 
If you are seeking small and medium sized companies to subcontract for you or to provide you with goods and services, you will be assigned a table where you will be able to speak with small businesses that have signed up to network with you.  You will be able to discuss any opportunities that exist for them with your company or agency. Cost to attend is FREE.  
As a Business Participant 
If you are looking for opportunities to subcontract with larger companies in your field or if you are hoping to provide goods and services to one of the agencies or organizations represented at the event, you will be given a list of the purchasing agents present and on the morning of the event you will sign up for 10-minute meetings with the agents of your choice. You will be able to discuss the products/services you offer and any key selling points you wish to highlight. Cost to attend is $10.
