On Wednesday, July 18, the matchmaker portion of the event provides an opportunity for businesses, contractors, and universities to be part of aerospace industry services and contractors. The event will allow small business representatives to meet one-on-one with NASA centers and prime contractors for millions of dollars’ worth of contracting opportunities.
