Today's Challenge Tomorrow's Reward

The Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) conference: Today’s Challenge Tomorrow’s Reward Conference (TCTR) focuses on providing educational and skill building workshops, best practices, and networking opportunities to statewide DBE firms and contractors wanting to do business with IDOT. The overall goal is to help advance the firm’s skill set and knowledge to increase their competitiveness and opportunities for work on federally funded highway contracts.

For over a quarter century, the TCTR Conference has provided subcontractors, DBE firms, and prime contractors with invaluable information and networking opportunities. Presentations and workshops will include estimating and bidding, project management, erosion control, advanced financing, social media marketing, and much more. In addition, Supportive Services will be on site to assist certified DBE firms. The conference concludes with an awards luncheon recognizing outstanding firms throughout the state.
