Thank You

On behalf of Christopher Newport University’s Office of Procurement Services, we would like to express our sincerest thanks to all of the sponsors, attendees and exhibitors for their participation in making SWaM Fair 2019 a wonderful success! There were 64 exhibitors and approximately 285 attendees at the fair this year, helping us to strengthen our commitment to the small business community and Virginia’s SWaM goal.

Our appreciation goes out to:

  • Kim Brewer, eVA marketing and outreach manager, Department of General Services, for hosting the Quick Quotes work session
  • Cidna Unger, manager, supplier relationship management, Department of General Services, for her workshop on the vendor manual
  • Martin Short Jr. with the Small Business Administration for his workshop What You Need to Know to Start and Succeed in Business

Without our sponsors we would not be able to hold such an amazing event each year. There are no words to express what their support means to us as we continue to support the small business community. We sincerely extend our gratitude to:

  • The Whiting Turner Co.
  • Johnson Controls
  • Saunders Contracting Services, Inc.
  • W.M. Jordan
  • Encompass Supply
