A Virtual Event on the SWAPCARD Platform


Alliance Northwest is the largest business-to-government conference in the Pacific Northwest. This event features high-quality workshops and matchmaking sessions between small businesses, government agencies, and prime contractors.  The event is in its 35th year.  Hosted by Thurston Economic Development Council, home of Washington Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), Alliance Northwest has a strong history of federal agency support. It is widely known as the place where business and government learn and connect.  


  • Businesses interested in selling to the government and prime contractors.
  • Prime contractors and government buyers seeking to do outreach to small and diverse businesses.

This event attracts over 1,000 attendees, including the who’s-who of government contracting. Alliance Northwest is the premier government contracting event in the region, bringing together prime contractors, government agencies, and small businesses for a full day of relationship building.  The 2021 event will start with pre-event activities and allow for extended networking beyond March 11th. 

For those firms who are experienced government contractors, Alliance Northwest is the place to strengthen established relationships, explore other government contracting opportunities and teaming opportunities, and hear the marketplace’s latest news and trends from the expert workshop speakers.

If you’re new to government contracting, you’ll have an opportunity to meet government agency representatives, explore subcontracting opportunities with prime contractors and attend high-quality training workshops.
