A Fully Immersive Virtual Conference

A History of Resilience... A Future of Brilliance

Now in its 40th Year, the Michigan Minority Procurement Conference (MMPC) continues to be the nation’s premier business conference, with a high focus on connecting global, national and local corporations with the top minority business enterprises (MBE) in Michigan and throughout the country.

This year's three-day event will be held fully virtually for a second year in a row, and will feature workshops, industry-specific forums, a diverse tradeshow floor, and a procurement matchmaker for MBEs to speak one-on-one with corporate buyers.
