NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., will host the 19th annual High-Tech Conference for Small Business on March 6 and 7, at the Radisson Hotel 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 Martin Ramirez at 818-354-6093 for exhibit information. A registration fee of $130 per person is due no later than Feb. 17, 2007. Pre-registration is advised.
