Fairfax to Host Small Business Summit

The Virginia Small Business Partnership announced that the third annual Virginia Small Business Summit will be held on Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 at the Mason Inn Conference Center & Hotel in Fairfax.

Chairman David Skiles of the Virginia Small Business Partnership said that by continuing the company's long tradition of hosting the Virginia Small Business Summit in September, they chose to honor the distinction made by the Virginia General Assembly in naming Sept. 21 Small Business Day in Virginia. The company wants to highlight the important role small businesses play in Virginia’s economy.

The Virginia Small Business Summit is the first event of its kind in the Commonwealth of Virginia and marks the third straight year the Virginia Small Business Partnership has hosted the summit. The purpose of this event is to provide small business owners and entrepreneurs with the opportunity to discuss commonsense, business friendly ideas to help improve Virginia’s small business climate.

The 2012 Virginia Small Business Summit will focus on five issues important to the small business community: healthcare, education, energy, contracting and procurement, and small business manufacturing.
