Congratulations to our 2017 Supplier of the Year award winners!
What do you get when you combine two SCMSDC events – Minority Business Opportunity Day (MBOD) and the Supplier of the Year (SOTY) awards luncheon — into one action-packed affair that increases networking and engagement opportunities between minority business enterprises (MBEs) and corporate members? SCMSDC’s Gateway Conference.
The conference — to be held March 14 and 15 at the Pacific Palms Resort in Industry Hills – offers the best of both MBOD and SOTY– unique business educational tracts, an opportunity for attending suppliers to pitch their goods and services to corporations within their specific industry, evening receptions open to all attendees, an exhibit fair featuring corporate and MBE exhibitors, and, for the first time, a chance to see firsthand why corporate members nominate their MBE partners, and, as importantly, sharing the MBEs excitement as they await the announcement of the local SOTY winners competition.
The SOTY Awards celebrates outstanding certified MBE partnerships with member corporations. MBEs are nominated by member corporations and compete in the local competition for the “Supplier of the Year” award in four major categories, determined by MBEs’ gross annual sales. Local winners receive awards, prestigious business scholarships, special recognition and compete in the regional and national competition for the NMSDC “Supplier of the Year” award.
