Albany's Marine base is reaching out to contractors who might want to work with the base.

Marine Corps Logistics Command's trade show is a networking opportunity for those businesses.

About 100 booths and vendors will be set up at the Civic Center tomorrow.

The president of the Albany Dougherty economic development commission says the Corps is always looking for better ways to do business.

Often, the most cost effective way is to outsource work ranging from vehicle maintenance to painting.

"It is a source of new business for any small company, if they have the talent and the skills to match up with the requirements of the marine corps has, it is a great opportunity to add business with a stable client, the federal government, represented by the marine corps, so it is a great business opportunity," says Ted Clem, Albany/Dougherty Economic Development Commission President.

The trade show runs from 8:00AM to 5:00PM tomorrow and 8:00AM to noon on Friday.

If your company wants to take part but didn't pre-register. Walk-ins are welcome.

The registration fee is $80.
