Hundreds of veteran business owners will gather in Las Vegas this month for the third annual National Veteran Small Business Conference and Expo, organizers said Thursday. 

The event will focus on how veteran-owned companies can do business with the federal government, with separate sessions for IT, construction, manufacturing, and services industries.

At the expo, business owners will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from government and commercial organizations, as well as network with other veteran business owners. 

The conference and expo will be held June 25-28 at Caesars Palace.
