SMBR asks that you attend as many Pre-bids and Pre-proposals that you can while trying to grow your business.
Pre-bid meetings give you an opportunity to learn about the details of the project and to ask the Project Manager or the contract manager questions. As a business owner, be prepared to market your company so bring your business cards and your marketing materials so that you can demonstrate your skills and experience to future primes.
Mandatory Pre-Bid Conferences are a really great opportunity as every company that wishes to bid as a prime contractor must be in the room, so get a copy of the sign-in sheet and contact those companies. Let them know who you are and what you do. Good luck!
