Having attended my first ContractReady event in Ft. Eustis as an Exhibitor, I was overwhelmed by the reception, business exposure to the military and private business sector and the outstanding interest I received at my booth. The personal follow-up by many participants was beyond my expectation. Thank you, ContractReady Staff, for your support. I decided to increase my exposure by providing a comprehensive workshop at future ContractReady Events.

Dr. Edward D. Williams | President & CEO, Jaw Joint Science Institute

Over the course of the past several years I have attended many procurement and match making seminars in an effort to promote and advance my business.  From the first time attending a seminar being run by ContractReady, to my most recent attendance at the Ft. Eustis Contracting Procurement Forum and Match Making event, it was clear that careful organization and  planning are paramount in their operational goals.  In my opinion one of the key elements for the success of these events produced by ContractReady is there unique team of associates, whom are always knowledgeable and eager to assist all attendee in meeting their goals, objectives, and expectations.    One such exemplary team associate is Mr. Jay Elliott.    Mr Elliott has proven himself as a highly valued asset to the matchmaking process in all procurement markets.   I’m always eager to attend ContractReady events and would highly recommend them to anyone seeking to hold a Public, Private, or Government agency procurement matchmaking event.
