Communities of Interest (COI)


In order to facilitate and encourage targeted networking and peer-to-peer dialogue, participants are grouped in color-coded Communities of Interest (COI). The four COIs, derived from the North American Industry Classification System codes are:

 

  • Medical Supplies and Services - Red
  • Information Technology Supplies and Services - Green
  • Facilities Supplies and Services - Blue
  • Other Supplies and Services – Yellow

 

Following the COI color during the engagement will lead you to activities and sessions directly related to your business interest that share commonalities and interdependencies

Ways to Engage

In its seventh year, NVSBE continues to prove the most effective way to directly connect VOSBs with potential buyers from the federal, state and commercial marketplaces.
