Energy Investments with an ROI Are Good for Business by Energy Huntsville
Industry’s assembly line of manufacturing, distribution, construction and operations comes to a halt when energy availability is interrupted, making business and industry keenly sensitive to energy efficiency and security. Efficient energy operations also boost the bottom line because they can significantly reduce operating costs, resulting in very short-term ROIs. This session is to help industry take advantage of these opportunities for improved energy security and efficiency.
Special Session “Doing Business with Energy Primes” by The Catalyst
This session brings together small businesses and Energy Savings Performance prime Contractors (ESPCs) for business match-making. For details and registration visit:

Annual Small Business Forum by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Huntsville Center,
On Wednesday morning all summit exhibitors will be gone and the Rocket City Summit will yield the event facility to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for its USACE Annual Small Business Forum. This event has been held previously at the Jackson Center, but is being moved this year to the US Space and Rocket Center.
The forum is an opportunity for small business representatives to talk about their capabilities with Huntsville Center contracting officials and program managers and learn about upcoming opportunities to work with Huntsville Center.
The forum is an excellent networking opportunity with many larger businesses looking for small business subcontractors in attendance. In addition, many small business firms with similar interests meet at the event and often team together to go after some of the Center’s larger procurements. We strongly encourage you to attend. There is no cost, but you must register.
This event is separate from the Summit and you must register with USACE HNC:
