What is the MARKETPLACE Conference?

Are you ready to start or grow your business in Wisconsin? Each year, MARKETPLACE helps minority, woman and veteran-owned company representatives learn about doing business with state, federal and local agencies as well as corporations. These markets represent billions of dollars of annual purchasing with special programs to include minority, women, veteran and disadvantaged business owners.

Meet with potential buyers, identify funding sources, connect with business assistance resources and build their capacity at MARKETPLACE.

What to Expect
The first day features FREE workshops on construction, building sales & capacity and a Foxconn project update followed by an evening networking reception. The second day begins with a breakfast program before opening the Expo Hall with one-on-one buyer meetings and booths of small businesses, resource providers, government agencies, lenders and others. An award luncheon recognizes the achievements of Minority, Woman and Veteran Owned firms, as well as those recognized by the Wisconsin Department of Administration and other agencies.
