Exhibiting at the NMSDC Business Opportunity Exchange is one of the most cost-effective decisions you can ever make for your business.

The 2015 NMSDC Business Opportunity Exchange will be held on Monday, October 19, at the San Diego Convention Center. This unique national trade show attracts corporations and minority business enterprises from around the world, all with the same goal — to expand their professional and business contacts.

The Business Opportunity Exchange is the largest national procurement event of its kind, and is attended by hundreds of key procurement executives and top minority businesses. More than 750 booths are available for exhibitors in all product and service areas.

Buyers can acquaint themselves with the capabilities of Asian, Black, Hispanic and Native American suppliers who are ready to provide products, services and solutions to major corporations, hospitals, universities and other buying organizations.

The Business Opportunity Exchange allows minority business owners to cluster numerous sales calls with dozens of Fortune 500 companies and other buying institutions. It’s the only place you can accomplish so much—so conveniently.

More than 6,000 corporate executives, institutional buyers and minority business owners representing every state and industry group are expected to attend.

Whether you’re an exhibitor, or walking the show floor, you’ll discover that the 2015 Business Opportunity Exchange offers the most comprehensive forum for conducting business.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”32px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]
