Richmond’s Office of Minority Business Development Announces 2017 Procure Your Business Conference


The City of Richmond, Office of Minority Business Development (OMBD) is proud to present its 2017 Procure Your Business Conference on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Delta Hotels – Marriott, 555 E. Canal Street, Richmond, VA. This conference provides attendees with educational sessions and information useful in strengthening the diversity of contractors and qualified individuals for construction and non-construction opportunities across regional markets.


Patricia Foster, Director of OMBD said, “This conference raises awareness of the availability of diversified market suppliers in an industry that is ripe for growth. As a result, we expect attendees to be more equipped to share their business expertise and readiness as participants in procurement processes of their goods and services.” Chief Executive Officers (CEO's) and other executives of some of the most recognized names in the construction, government and corporate industries will share their knowledge, technical expertise and even some of the failures that led to success. Mayor Levar M. Stoney will also bring greetings from the city. Interested contractors and suppliers may sign up for the 2017 Procure Your Business Conference here.

A pre-conference workshop on what to expect and how to prepare for the conference will be held on September 15, 2017, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m., at the Conrad Culinary Center, 1400 Oliver Hill Way, Richmond, VA. Please register here or contact Richmond’s OMBD at (804) 646-5947 for more information.
