VETS23 is designed to maximize both training and networking connections. Training sessions include 5 General Sessions, 30 Business Opportunity Sessions, and 5 half-day workshops, all focused on top federal trends and BD-related issues; all sessions are delivered by agency and govcon industry leaders. And networking is baked into the conference from arrival to departure, with over 19 hours of Matched Networking Appointments.
