Center for Creative EntrepreneurshipCOLUMBUS, Miss. – The W will host the “SOS: Suppliers Opportunities Seminar” Thursday, Aug. 29 from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Claudia A. Limbert Assembly Room in Cochran Hall on campus.

 
The seminar will be presented by Center for Creative Entrepreneurship at The W and East Mississippi Community College.

The Suppliers Opportunities Seminar is designed to be of value to businesses that provide commodities, supplies and services to industries and distributors.  The goal for this seminar is to link small business sales to the local industry purchasing practices.  

“Often when industries are recruited, their economic benefit to an area is defined by the number of jobs they will create.  However, the marketing and sales opportunities they provide for businesses in the area sometimes go unrecognized,” said Lucy Betcher, administrator for the Center for Creative Entrepreneurship.

The seminar will include eight industries with table displays. In addition to The W, participating industries include Weyerhaeuser, Stark Aerospace, American Eurocopter, Mississippi State University, Flexsteel, MJF Enterprises and Weavexx. Seven of the industries will be speaking and presenting about their purchasing processes.

Betcher added, “We hope that this seminar will increase awareness of the opportunities for mutual benefits for both industries and businesses and that they will come together in an ‘everybody wins’ situation.”

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the CCE at (662) 241-6277.
