Build Long Lasting Business Partnerships Through One-on-One Meetings at the 4th Annual National MBE Manufacturers Summit 2019


By Asha Morton

Whether you are a small business or industry giant, networking at the right event is the way to success. Attending trade shows is a great way to increase brand visibility and boost a company’s reputation, which will, in turn, lead to more opportunities for your team. Business networking expands your knowledge, teaches success from others and helps to attain new clients and tell others about your business.

Networking is also an excellent way to gain knowledge from experts, get advice from influencers and build friendships that last a lifetime. Usually, like-minded business owners gather at popular industry events with an interest in learning and sharing ways to expand and gain more business.

The National MBE Manufacturers Summit 2019 is a great opportunity to get acquainted with  over 600 attendees from 28 states, Puerto Rico, Washington, DC, and Canada have taken advantage of the one-on-one meetings with corporations and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), education and training, networking, Poster Walk competition, innovation pods, and manufacturing technology tour that the Summit has offered. Many of the contacts you make during the Summit are vetted through networking and can potentially become clients. Motivated groups of business owners always pose an opportunity for partnerships, new ventures and long-lasting business.


Companies like BMW, Trane and Bluebird participate in 15-minute “Fast Pitch” sessions that allow them to connect with various MBE’s to discover their capabilities and share their organization’s business needs. This is an opportunity for each company to build relationships that may lead to mutually beneficial business deals in the future.


The Poster Walk is a great chance for businesses to gain exposure and highlight past projects each participating company completed that is relevant to the current theme. Each poster displays a three-stage process of either innovation, productivity or sustainability, and details the methods the company followed to achieve the end goal.
