Partner Shahzad Qadri attended the 2017 NMSDC Conference and Business Opportunity Exchange October 22-25 at the COBO Center in Detroit, Michigan. This annual event is the nation’s premier forum on minority supplier development. For four days, more than 6,000 corporate CEOs, procurement executives and supplier diversity professionals from top multinational companies as well as leading Asian, Black, Hispanic and Native American business owners and international organizations will convene to re-energize their collective efforts to develop and advocate for more vigorous participation by minority-owned firms in global corporate supply chains.
The NMSDC advances business opportunities for certified minority business enterprises (MBEs) and connects them to corporate members. To meet the growing need for supplier diversity, NMSDC matches its nearly 12,000 certified minority-owned businesses to their network of more than 1,400 corporate members who wish to purchase their products, services and solutions.
