The 2013 AWIB Annual Procurement Opportunities Conference
Asian Women in Business understands that for minority and women-owned businesses to grow, they need additional opportunities with Fortune 1000 companies and government agencies. AWIB facilitates procurement opportunities between minority and women-owned businesses and corporate and government buyers.
On an annual basis, AWIB sponsors a procurement opportunities conference which not only provides information on the processes but also matches pre-qualified minority and women-owned businesses with corporate buyers.
AWIB's 2013 Procurement Opportunities Conference for Minority and Women Owned Businesses once again offered ample opportunity to meet the right people: extensive exhibition area, one-on-one corporate matchmaking sessions, B2B networking and industry expert led panel discussions - all designed to help minority and women business owners grow their enterprises.
John C. Liu, Comptroller of the City of New York kick-started the conference and spoke about the importance of including MWBE's in City contracting. There were over 40 Federal, State and City exhibitors, who met with vendors and shared information that would assist them in bidding for business.
AWIB would like to thank BNY Mellon for their long term support.
The following is a list of corporations, government agencies, and regional authorities who were in attendence.
