Bike To Work Day - Business Challenge

Saturday, April 28, 2018

Bike to Work Day gives everyone a reason to try cycling as a form of commuting, which positively impacts regional air quality, health and traffic congestion.

This year, Bike to Work Day has an added element to encourage increased participation from local businesses with the Business Challenge.
Put your employees to the test and distinguish your company from its competition. Businesses are split into four classes:
Class A (1-29 employees), B (30-99 employees), C (100-299 employees) and D (300+ employees).
The 2018 Business Challenge is presented by the Denver Business Journal.

Your Capability Statement for Government Contracts

Due to the heightened competitive market place in the construction/transportation industry, Capability Statements are no longer common in the public sector procurement and are not exclusive to government contracting. They are now effective in the private sector. In order to be competitive and stay successful in your markets, a capability statement is a critical tool no matter what size company you represent.

In addition to the expo hall, training sessions are held in the afternoon on the topics of government procurement. There is also a keynote speaker during lunch, as well as engaging one-on-one sessions between buyers and sellers (by appointment only).

There is no cost for government agencies (buyers) to participate. Businesses may purchase an exhibitor table or a general admission ticket. Spaces are limited and early registration is encouraged, as this event does sell out!
