Major Detroit companies host conference for suppliers


The 2014 Detroit-Based and Diversity-Owned Businesses Procurement Conference held August 7 on the Wayne State University campus was an opportunity for several dozen women- and minority-owned Detroit-based suppliers to have a one-on-one dialog with buyers from five major Detroit companies: Detroit Medical Center, DTE, Henry Ford Health Systems, Wayne State University and Quicken Loans.

“Reshaping Our Community by Investing in Local Resources” was the theme of the conference. Current vendors were able to renew their relationships, and potential vendors were able meet the procurement representatives from each of those institutions and share brochures, pamphlets and other literature.
