Pure Michigan Business Connect (PMBC) will partner with Wayne County Economic Development, Wayne County Airport Authority, DTMB, MDOT, City of Detroit, and GLWA to host a meet the buyer's summit and identify potential suppliers. 

The purpose of this event is to educate suppliers on the process of doing business with each government unit, how to apply for and get notified of RFP/RFB's, and what the thresholds are for micro-purchasing opportunities. 

The event will include walk up tables and roundtables led by the purchasing dept of each partner listed above. You'll have a chance to select purchaser/s to sit with for a candid conversation and hear about their micro-purchasing needs and bid process. 

Event will begin at 9 am and last for two hours. There are limited seats, but open networking throughout the course of the event.
