Event Description

The Office of Supplier Diversity and the University of Florida's Small Business & Vendor Diversity Relations Division are proud to present the 2018 Gainesville Supplier Diversity Exchange on March 8.

The Gainesville Supplier Diversity Exchange will include a panel discussion, networking opportunities, and one-on-one interviews. During the Business Exchange portion, small business owners can market their goods and services directly with local and state buyers at scheduled one-on-one interviews.

 

Scheduling your One-on-One Interviews During the Business Exchange

Suppliers & Small Business Attendees: after completing your registration and prior to the event, you will receive an email with a survey asking you to select the top agencies and organizations you would like to meet with.

Interviews are scheduled based on the order of the completed surveys. Complete this survey as soon as possible to secure interview appointments with your top choices.

We do our best to match attendees with at least four of the top five entities selected.
