KTP Celebrating SuccessAt A Glance

KTP Celebrating Success will be hosted at The Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. We've chosen Las Vegas because it's recognized around the world as a center-point of all major business conferences.

KTP Celebrating Success is structured around three major tracks which are critical for business success in government contracting:

  • - Marketing Your Business

  • - Business Development with Emphasis on Success

  • - Direct Networking with Buyers

KTP Celebrating Success includes two full days of peer-to-peer networking, break-outs, training, speakers, and multiple opportunities to help veteran & disabled veteran business owners and entrepreneurs grow their businesses in 2017.

“KTP Celebrating Success will be The Ultimate Experience for Veterans and Businesses Seeking to Capitalize on Today's Government Contracting Market.”
- Rene Cota, Interim Executive Director of the DVBA
