NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., will host
the 16th annual High-Tech Conference for Small Business on March
2 and 3, 2004, at the Radisson Hotel located near Los Angeles
International Airport.

The two-day conference will focus on subcontracting and marketing
opportunities for small, minority, women-owned and veteran-owned
businesses in high-tech industries. It includes several “how-to”
workshops featuring information on major programs, small business
initiatives and other topics.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with approximately
250 corporate, federal, state and city government representatives
to discuss potential contracting and subcontracting
opportunities. One-on-one counseling to discuss potential
business opportunities is available with more than 100
exhibitors. There is no fee to exhibit; however, due to space
limitations exhibitors are limited to prime contractors and
government agencies. Contact Margo Kuhn at (818) 354-5722 for
exhibit information. A registration fee of $100 per person is due
no later than Feb. 20, 2004. Pre-registration is advised.
