MBEs are urged to register early for the 2018 Annual Conference to make the most out of One-on-One Business Engagement Sessions.
One-on-One Business Engagement Sessions are designed to match Certified MBEs with opportunities from Corporate/Public Agency Members during the 2018 Annual Conference. The meetings are scheduled by the Council from 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM on the afternoon of the conference. Each meeting lasts 15 minutes.
However, MBEs cannot set-up meetings with Corporate/Public Agency Members. It is up to the members to select which MBEs to meet based on the enhanced MBE profiles provided by the Council.
Enhanced MBE profiles are created upon registration for the 2018 Annual Conference.
Early registration allows the Council enough time to promote your company to Corporate/Public Agency Members. This also allows Supplier Diversity Executives to pull together their Sourcing/Procurement Teams and find appropriate individuals who may want to meet with MBEs. Last minute registration limits time within which to match MBEs to potential opportunities.
Last minute registrations are counter productive since there is very little time left to gather sourcing teams and most appointment spots fill up weeks before the conference.
If an MBE is interested in meeting a Corporate/Public Agency Member, or present a new product, service, solution or innovation, this is the best time to do it. Plan ahead and plan early.
Please register by: April 30, 2018
