The Midwest Supplier Diversity Exposition was created to provide diverse business owners with a venue to showcase their products and services, to network with other entrepreneurs, and to connect with procurement representatives from the public and private sector.

Procurement representatives will meet diverse business owners that can fulfill participation goals, expand databases with qualified business owners that have capacity, and document minority outreach.

Business owners that provide catering services, promotional products, electrical services/supplies, plumbing services, office supplies, furniture, marketing services, advertising services, restoration and environmental services, various consulting services, athletic uniforms/gear, janitorial services/supplies, landscaping, engineering services, and RETAIL are just a few of the many industries exhibiting.

Exhibit space

Wednesday, July 20th. Tables and chairs will be set up on July 20st between 8 a.m. and Noon. Exhibitors will have access for EARLY Set-Up from Noon - 4 p.m.

Thursday, July 21st. Access to set-up is from 8 to 10 a.m. Please do not move the tables unless you have received prior approval to allow for your display. Feel free to set your display on the table, beside the table, or behind the table.

Your exhibit space includes 1 table (approximately 6' X 30") and 2 chairs. You will be responsible for selecting your exhibit space (first come, first serve). If you have a large floor model display, select a table on the back row in the class or conference room area or at the end of a row of tables so as not to block the view of other exhibitors. There will be volunteers to assist and direct you.

Table linen will not be provided this year. If you have your own table covering (especially with your company logo) we encourage you to use it to identify your company. You will not have pipe and drape to hang any banners.

Electricity (free access)

There are a limited number of electrical outlets along the walls. However, you will need to bring your electrical cord(s). Tables stationed near electrical outlets will be easily identified with a table tent marked "electrical outlet." Our facility team will secure the cord with tape for safety reasons. Several exhibitors have requested this service so please allow them the opportunity to use that space if you do not require an electrical outlet.


Internet access is available upon request.

Door prizes
