Business Directory MSDUK Delegation to 2013 NMSDC Conference San Antonio


On behalf of the Board of Directors and the management team of Minority Supplier Development UK (MSDUK), I would like to welcome and introduce the UK Business Delegation of certified Ethnic Minority Businesses visiting the 2013 NMSDC Annual Conference in San Antonio. Established in 2006, MSDUK is proud to be part of NMSDC’s Global-Link network of affiliates and continue to work with global and British corporations in making supply chain diversity and inclusion part of their everyday business. In today’s interconnected world of business and commerce, minority businesses have even greater opportunities to grow faster and become global business leaders. MSDUK over the last seven years has become central to the growth and success of ethnic minority businesses in the UK, connecting them to a comprehensive supply chain ecosystem, supporting them in their business and personal development through educational and mentoring programmes, and promoting B2B collaboration both nationally and internationally. Through our outreach events, including industry specific meet the buyer events, annual supplier diversity days, a bi-annual conference and awards dinner and a series of B2B events and best practice seminars, MSDUK provides both corporate organisations and EMBs huge opportunities to meet, network, learn and develop long-lasting business relationships. For the first time, we are bringing a group of seven highly successful and aspiring ethnic minority businesses to the NMSDC conference. They all aspire to expand their business globally and are looking to partners and clients not only in the US but across NMSDC’s global link affiliated countries like Canada, South Africa, China and Australia. We present their business profiles and their schedule in San Antonio with the hope you will either meet them or connect them to your business associates, Tier1 suppliers or MBEs. If you would like to meet us and know about our future plans, visit us at Booth 423 at the Business Opportunity Fair on 28th October, or email us to arrange a one to one meeting during our stay in San Antonio.
