4th Annual Conference:

We’re going VIRTUAL!

October 12 & 13, 2020    Registration begins July 6

During these challenging times the VIB Network recognizes that business opportunities still need to happen, but in a new way. That is why we have decided to host the VIB Conference, virtually.  And even though we can’t meet in-person, it’s important to continue to connect.

This virtual experience will allow more Veteran Businesses, Corporations, and Government Agencies to participate nationwide. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect, learn and share with an easy and engaging virtual conference platform. All Virtual VIB Conference attendees will receive access to: Motivational Speakers, Business Matchmaking Sessions, Informative Seminars/Panel Discussions, Opportunity Expo, VIB Virtual Concert, Games, Networking and More!

ABOUT THE VIRTUAL CONFERENCE:
Impactful and Engaging

The VIB Network is excited to host a full virtual conference platform that will have the look and feel of an actual in-person conference. We will blend pre-recorded videos along with live presentations to keep the conference fun and engaging. We know cybersecurity is important that is why we’ve selected an ISO certified business with over 18 years of virtual experience. An HTML5 based platform will allow you to connect from any system or mobile device. We know we can’t meet in-person but this will be a virtual conference experience you don’t want to miss.

Virtual Business Matchmaking:
One-on-One Meetings in the palm of your hand.

We believe that face-to-face meetings are important in building business relationships. The VIB Network will offer virtual business matchmaking sessions throughout the conference. We have partnered with Veteran-Owned/VIB Member My Business Matches (MBM) to do this. MBM is user friendly and does not require hardware or software installation. It will allow you to share documents and to communicate face-to-face. This robust platform will help you find the right connections for any opportunity.

Why we’re different…

One of the things that set us apart from other organizations is that we don’t charge the Veteran businesses a membership fee. We believe their service to the country was payment enough. We also offer directory access, website, outreach events, webinars, Veteran Business Cohort programs, and our VIB App – all at no charge. Sponsorship funds go to helping us offer these services and other innovative programs.
