2022 Minority Enterprise Trade Show

MED Week Supplier Diversity Forum and Trade Show

Rowan University invites you to attend the 2022 Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week Supplier Diversity Forum and Trade Show to celebrate the annual National MED Week. We are proud to host this event for the very first time and anticipate connecting with local, minority, LGBTQ+, women-owned businesses, veterans, and businesses owned by people with disabilities. 

The event offers a forum for networking and includes a Q&A Panel Discussion geared toward business owners interested in doing business with Rowan University. The panel discussion is followed by a Diversity Trade EXPO where businesses can share information about their goods and services with our departments. We look forward to your participation and generating future business opportunities that increase economic growth within our community.
