Welcome to the 11th Annual ProcureCon 2015 Conference website.
Our success story begins in 2005. It was around then that Tinh Phan, our visionary Chairman, recognized an opportunity to create an opportunity for small to medium size U.S. suppliers to build partnerships, develop business relationships and network with one another via a large scale business conference. ProcureCon would provide education, networking, and a dynamic venue at which business owners can meet with key decision makers from the private and public sectors.
Under his guidance, numerous annual ProcureCons were launched to achieve his vision.
Beginning 2014 Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce continued the tradition incorporating trade and investment opportunities to help promote export business to the SMEs ( Small, Medium Size Enterprise) communities. Participating firms will have the benefit of marketing their products/services/ideas to decision makers through our signature Match Making Program.
In 2015 to keep up with a growing entrepreneurial community, we are introducing an Industrial Trade Show to promote and introduce more SMEs manufacturing firms or firms with innovative solutions ( such as as robotics, safety, electronic equipment, technology equipment and services, construction, logistics, architectural/engineering, R&D, scientific and technology creations, and professional services, and tourism economics, etc.... to a larger mainstream audience allowing these job creators to capture various business opportunities that arise in the horizon, setting a clear vision for the enterprises to grow and expand.
