Supplier diversity is a global business strategy that looks to provide opportunities for historically marginalized communities.  Later this month on September 25th and 26th, the the VOX Conference Center will host the United Kingdom’s largest annual supplier diversity conference in the nation’s history.  The event is run by the MSDUK, a non-profit “membership organisation driving inclusive procurement.”

This is the sixth year the event will connect large corporations, and diverse suppliers with one another for procurement opportunities.  The annual event attracts more than “600 delegates, 100 buyers and 60 exhibitors”.

In addition to the trade show and headlining speakers including news presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy, “the event will include the final of the MSDUK 2018 Innovation Challenge, with 12 of the most innovative entrepreneurs pitching their ideas to investors and supply chain experts.”
