2015 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.
The AWIB 2015 Procurement Opportunities Conference fosters partnerships for minority and women-owned businesses. Now in its 12th year, the Procurement Conference has become one of the premier events for small businesses in the tri-state area. It is designed to help minority and women owned firms grow in an increasingly competitive business environment.
MWBE's will meet with government agencies and regional authorities at our extensive exhibition area as well as meet one-on-one with Fortune 1,000 companies during our corporate matchmaking sessions (for pre-qualified vendors only). The conference also includes industry expert-led panel discussions, which offer valuable insight into the procurement process. Those in attendance will have a great opportunity to make the connections that could propel their businesses forward.
Registration is required to attend the conference and Pre-qualification Forms should be fully completed for attendees to be considered for one-on-one appointments. MWBE certification is not required but recommended; registration and completion of the pre-qualification form is required to participate in the matchmaking session. The deadline to submit the pre-qualification form is June 10, 2015. These invaluable sessions are FREE to participate in. However, matches are made according to product/service requested by the corporations, and therefore not guaranteed. Please be advised that companies must have revenues over a period of time to be considered for match making. As always, AWIB members receive special consideration.
We would appreciate donations from non-members who would like to attend this event to defray a small part of the costs and to allow us to continue this tradition of helping the small business community.
*Registration will be open soon.
AWIB would like to thank BNY Mellon for their long term support.
