Western Mass EDC and MGM Springfield Host Local Supplier Diversity Networking Event

May 23 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Western Mass Economic Development Council (EDC) and MGM Springfield are collaborating to host a networking event Tuesday, May 23rd, designed to provide support to local vendors including minority-owned, women-owned, LGBTQ+-owned, and veteran-owned businesses.  The goal is to bring regional anchor institutions and local vendors that provide goods and services together. Vendors will have the opportunity to meet directly with the MGM Springfield sourcing team, and learn about future vendor contracts. Support will be available to prepare and scale potential vendors for contracts.

The event is influenced by the Western Massachusetts Anchor Collaborative (WMAC), which provides comprehensive, systemic, and locally led solutions to regional, women and minority owned businesses (MWBE) and workforce challenges. The EDC and MGM Springfield hope to enhance their impact and drive regional economic equity and financial vitality for their communities by connecting stakeholders in the region. This is done through networking events and assistance in cultivating a resilient local supplier pipeline. Attendees and vendors can register for the event here.
