Why Should I Attend?

The University of Illinois procures a variety of goods and services and it is our goal to increase our pool of minority and female businesses.  We realize the importance of supplier diversity in our purchasing process and we want to help you understand how to business with us.

 

The University of Illinois MAFBE Conference will take place on June 10, 2009 at the UIC Forum. This year’s theme Making the Connection 2009 is focused on connecting the University’s buying departments with qualified businesses. The goal of the conference is to build relationships with MAFBE firms in order to enhance our supplier diversity initiatives.

The conference Matchmaking Session will feature exhibitors from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Urbana, and Springfield campuses.  Also, participating in the matchmaking session will be representatives from other public and private universities including local government entities. The Matchmaking Session will provide an opportunity for business owners to connect and market their products and/or services to the buying departments.
