The MAPPS Winter Conference, which will be held January 22 - 26, 2012, at
the Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix, will once again feature a popular
"speed dating" session to help introduce groups of firms for
potential future business opportunities. This year's "speed dating"
theme is matching hardware/software producers with service firm users. Other
topics that will be addressed during the conference include business
opportunities in cloud computing, NERC mandates and technology solutions,
unmanned aerial vehicles, frequently asked questions about small business
procurement in the Small Business Administration, benefits and opportunities in
a National Geodetic Survey gravity program, and more.
