Business Opportunity Exchange

Business Opportunity Exchange

Taking place during Minority Business Opportunity Week, the GMSDC’s Business Opportunity Exchange is the Council’s signature supplier diversity and small business development conference. The focus of this week’s activities is Opportunities. This conference explores how we might be more creative and more proactive in how we utilize minority suppliers. The conference is a full week of speakers, networking, presentations and matchmaking, to be delivered virtually over technology platforms.
