Military Business Leadership and New York State Contracting Conference to Take Place This Year

ALBANY — The Veterans in Economic Transition Conference (VETCON) is returning for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference seeks to assist veterans in their transition from service to everyday life, focusing on providing financial tools, resources, and support returns to the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Albany on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.

“In this, our first VETCON since the pandemic, our goal is to continue to enable veteran business owners to grow their businesses, build their networks with other veterans and market their products and services to New York State agencies,” said Anthony Kuhn, Founding Partner, Tully Rinckey Kuhn and Chair of the 2021 VETCON Alliance.

In the past, the event has brought together public and private businesses, nonprofit and for-profit organizations, and New York State agencies for two days of hands-on workshops and networking opportunities. Over 100 Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOBs) and more than 130 state agency and authority personnel have participated in the inaugural conference and job fair. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in valuable hands-on workshops designed specifically for them, in addition to taking part in numerous informational and networking sessions with businesses, organizations and state agency purchasing personnel. Practical workshops will include information about how to certify a veteran-owned business and obtain federal and state contract set asides, proposal and business plan writing, business fundamentals, and matchmaking between entrepreneurial business and government agencies. All proceeds from VETCON will be donated toward the advancement of veterans’ services. To register for VETCON or to become a sponsor please visit
