The Carolinas-Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council’s 2016 Business Opportunity Conference August 8-9, 2016  
The Carolinas-Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council’s Business Opportunity Conference 2016 is fast approaching, and the Council is preparing for a memorable event. Our theme is “The Experience,” and our Title Sponsor is Bank of America. We are planning an exciting and impactful Business Opportunity Conference that adds value to your day-to-day business operations.  What lies inside of our theme, “The Experience,” is a purposeful event that meets and exceeds the expectations of all in attendance. This is in alignment with our 2016 areas of focus:
1.      providing a value proposition for Corporate Members;
2.     creating wealth for MBEs;
3.     being executionally and financially accountable.

Our Annual Meeting focused on “value” and being Better Together as a Council, certified MBEs and committed Corporate Members. The 2016 Business Opportunity Conference will provide continued tangible evidence of differentiated value that is causal to success. Keith Pigues, our chief strategist, will deliver facts from our initial survey on value conducted in January. We are excited about being able to bring the value proposition to life through salient examples. To make “The Experience” significant to both our corporations and MBEs, we will be combining our Business Marketplace, Matchmaker, Connect Zone and Reverse Tradeshow to create space for intentionality and intimate engagement. The business market will provide connections, opportunity validation and partnership solidification.
We will assess the Matchmaker results as follows:
1.      Connections (30 days)
2.     Follow-Up (60 days)
3.     Viable Opportunities (90 days)
Registration for Matchmaker is vital – please register right away. Corporations will need to provide their current opportunities and MBEs will need to express their interest in participating. The deadline for matchmaker registration is July 4th.
