The Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce, Mayo Clinic, the Diversity Council and the City of Rochester are partnering to host a premiere conference and business expo to highlight the economic power that derives from the diversity within our business community.
The conference brings together area small and diverse businesses to learn and connect and to help them take the next step in their development. The event will be attended by regional corporations, supply management organizations, support agencies and business associations interested in connecting with these businesses.
The networking and connecting continues when the conference gives way to a business expo that will be FREE and open to the general public! The business expo will provide Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce member businesses the opportunity to highlight their goods and services.
