The conference was OUTSTANDING last year. The panel discussions and workshops were insightful, and I have used some of the best practices that were shared. The Matchmaker sessions were equally as productive. Two of the firms that we met participated in the bid events. Although they were not successful in obtaining contracts, they were finalists in our sourcing selections.”Jennifer Morrison, People’s Gas

“I enjoy the opportunity to participate in the matchmaker event each year. The conference committee does a great job thoughtfully paring us, and I love the new connections. It is also a great opportunity to refine my pitch and message for each year.” – Jenny Niemann, Forward Space (WBE)

“I attended the breakout sessions. The speakers were appropriate, and we were able to participate and share with marketing and the best practices.”- Meg Cook, Paintus USA, Inc. WBE)

“Last year’s conference was exceptional. The breakout sessions were extremely informative and covered a broad range of topics and interests. The opportunity to attend the Matchmaker sessions offered us unique insights into supplier diversity. The ability to meet directly with a representative of a large corporation in that setting allowed us to gain specific knowledge on the best ways to connect, as well as offering an excellent business opportunity.”Dee Washburn, Washburn Envelope Corporation (WBE)
