There are hundreds of MBEs and Corporate Partners to connect with each year at the annual Business Opportunity Conference, so how can you possibly meet all of them? This year, we’re introducing Breakfast Circles and RING Café economic development workgroups to help you streamline the process and expand your professional network.

BREAKFAST CIRCLES – Tuesday, August 21st, 2018, 6:00 a.m. – 8:00 am
This year, BOC participants will enjoy open and informal roundtable discussions in the Embassy Suites Atrium at their leisure on Tuesday morning from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. Take the time to network with industry leaders, meet your peers, and learn about industry opportunities.

There’s also a full complimentary, made-to-order breakfast available.

Want to meet veteran entrepreneurs and ask them the secrets to their success? Want to get introduced to a key CVMSDC Corporate Partner and learn more about what they look for in MBE suppliers? Enjoy breakfast and join insightful conversations during the Breakfast Circles and leverage this opportunity to achieve your business goals. This breakfast is open to all registered BOC attendees.

RING CAFÉ GROUPS – Tuesday, August 21st, 2018, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

In case you missed it, the Council’s former RACs are now RINGs. What used to be called Regional Area Councils are now REGIONAL INDUSTRY NEEDS GROUPS! In response to feedback from our MBEs and Corporate Partners, we’ve developed our RINGs to more effectively customize the information and connections you want based on where you live and work within the CVMSDC network.

The RING Cafés are focused workgroups that address key issues, challenges, opportunities and solutions through straightforward discussions and shared ‘Best Practices.’ This year, RING Café participants will discuss the economic data provided by keynote speaker Dr. James Johnson and evaluate current industry opportunities for MBEs and Corporations.
