Midwest Supplier Diversity Exposition set for May 10

Metropolitan Community College is again honored to work with several community partners to bring together procurement and supplier diversity representatives.

The Midwest Supplier Diversity Exposition 2017 is free and will provide a great opportunity for area professionals to meet diverse vendors.

The Exposition was created in 2014 to provide diverse business owners with a venue to showcase their products and services, to network with other entrepreneurs, and to connect with procurement representatives from the public and private sector.

How the Exposition works:

  • For attendees, a business card will allow access to the exhibit hall.
  • For diverse suppliers (minority-owned, women-owned, LGBT-owned, veteran-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned,
    and Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUB Zone) enterprises), registration is required with the College.

Suppliers can register at mcckc.edu/midwest-exposition
