This wide array of conference events will provide the attendees with valuable knowledge and practical tools that they can then take back to use in their everyday entrepreneurial lives
Detroit, MI (PRWEB) July 13, 2009
The Native American Business Alliance Fund (NABA) is hosting its 9th Annual National Business and Procurement Conference on July 19th and 20th, 2009. This year's Conference theme is "Evolve, Prosper and Succeed", and the Conference will be held at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort located on the Saginaw Chippewa Indians Tribal Community in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.
What's truly exciting about this year's Conference, aside from its unique cultural experience, is the collaboration of two Japanese owned companies: Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc. and Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. are proud to stand arm-in-arm as Co-Sponsors of this fabulous event. They have expressed their eagerness to step into what has been always been known as "Big Three" Country.
"We are excited about the upcoming Conference not only because these two magnificent companies are coming together to support our efforts, but because they have truly demonstrated their commitment to doing business with Native American business owners and to supporting our efforts to help the Michigan economy. Although Michigan is still facing many challenges, attending NABA's National Procurement Conference is an ideal opportunity to re-invent your company and to develop new types of business contacts; when people ask me why they should attend, I say why not attend," says Jackie Gant, National Executive Director for NABA and an enrolled member of the Oneida Nation of the Thames Tribe.
The NABA Annual Conference offers NABA members and non- members the opportunity to network with nationally known companies; it also offers conference attendees the opportunity to conduct business face-to-face with purchasing representatives interested in working with Native American owned businesses or in doing business on Tribal Land. This conference is a premier event that opens many doors of opportunity to not only the many Native American businesses and Tribal communities that will attend, but for MBE's and Women-owned businesses; it also provides attendees with the chance to display their product or service to others through Resource Room. There will also be an opportunity to learn about Stimulus Projects available through various governmental agencies.
"This wide array of conference events will provide the attendees with valuable knowledge and practical tools that they can then take back to use in their everyday entrepreneurial lives," said NABA's National Executive Director, Jackie Gant. Aside from the main event sponsors Honda and Toyota, additional conference sponsors and attendees include The Home Depot, UPS, Inc., Ford Motor Company, Kellogg Company, General Motors Corporation, Choctaw-Kaul Distribution Company, Dupont Tyvek, Structural Steel Tech of Aamjiwnaang First Nation, Johnson Controls, Inc., Magna International, Chippewa Nation of the Thames, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., Aisin World Corporation of America, The Coca-Cola Company, Brenco Industrial Services, Wells Fargo Advisors, Minority Business Development Agency, Kingfish Worldwide Productions, The Blackfoot Company, Griffin Foods, Dakkota Integrated Systems, and many more.
