If you are looking to do business with our Corporate (Sustaining) Members, the roundtable sessions are the perfect opportunity for you to connect with Supplier Diversity professionals. These 20-minute discussions are held in a small group format of 8 per table. Representatives from over 30 of our corporate partners will be there to discuss their procurement processes, and you will be able to visit a total of five tables.  The sessions are first come, first served so we recommend reviewing the list of participants on our registration page in advance!  

The roundtables sessions at Connections to Contracts will put you directly in front of corporations looking to contract with women-owned businesses. After you've made a connection, it's important to follow up and be able to deliver your product to secure the business. Anderson Asphalt and Concrete Paving, LLC is our sponsor for the corporate roundtable sessions this year, and were also a recipient of a WBE of the Year award at the 2019 Parade of Stars Awards Gala.  Pam Thompson, President, attributes her success not only to being a certified WBE, but also to the experience she is able to give her customers. 

"While having WBE Status has opened many doors for Anderson Asphalt & Concrete Paving LLC, our winning strategy is based on accurate, informative estimates that meet the customer’s needs, followed up with quality performance delivered on time.” – Pam Thompson, President of Anderson Asphalt & Concrete Paving

Connections to Contracts is our signature procurement event of the year. The day will feature a grab-and-go breakfast, corporate roundtables, a keynote luncheon, “prime time” sessions led by Sustaining (Corporate) Members and their prime (Tier 1) suppliers, and a closing networking reception.
