2018 National Minority Enterprise Development Week Sponsorship Opportunities

The 2018 National MED Week will be October 14-20, 2018

2018 National Minority Enterprise Development Week Sponsorship Opportunities MBDA is collaborating with the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) to commemorate National MED Week in concert with the NMSDC Conference and Business Opportunity Exchange. The conference and associated MED Week activities will attract more than 6,000 business and industry leaders from multinational companies and organizations aimed at increasing supplier diversity. Attendees will have an opportunity to:

  • Learn about current industry trends
  • Gain tools to help grow their businesses
  • Network and form new partnerships
  • Learn practical ideas and tips that can contribute to continued job creation and growth of the economy.

MBDA will present a series of Powered by MBDA workshops and seminars at the conference that will focus on Federal Government resources including trade/exports, infrastructure, and federal procurement opportunities. MBDA will also host the MBDA Pavilion where minority entrepreneurs and business owners can obtain one-on-one business counseling and coaching sessions.

During National MED Week, we will also set aside time to honor minority business enterprises for their contributions to our nation’s economy. A special reception for award winners, their guests, and sponsors will be held.


As a sponsor, you will be a part of a longstanding tradition honoring the Nation’s fastest growing minority-owned firms, entrepreneurs, and advocates. Sponsoring National MED Week and the National Minority Business Awards program provides an opportunity to reach thousands of minority-owned businesses and business executives in one location. Whether you produce a product or provide a service that minority entrepreneurs need to manage and grow their businesses, or you are in the market for products and services that minority-owned firms can provide, you will make connections and do business with some of the best companies in the country.

Your support will enable MBDA to continue its work in the advancement of the minority business community and enable you to network with leading companies, industry experts, government officials, and corporate executives.
