We've heard of speed dating to find a date. Now companies are using the concept to land new business.

Small businesses will meet up with potential business clients this week. The U.S. Small Business Administration is hosting its 9th annual Matchmaker event at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

It's an opportunity to network with the area's top decision makers and have one-on-one time with federal, state and local agencies as well as prime government contractors.

The matchmaking will take place in 10 minute sessions. The event is also complete with a SCORE awards luncheon, an expo and more.

Small Business Matchmaker is slated for Wednesday, May 7 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center. It runs from 7am to 2pm. Simply can call 541-1631 for more information or register online at www.bizjournals.com .
