You’re invited to participate in the upcoming Supply Chain Opportunities Conference scheduled to take place on Wednesday, May 29 at the Radisson RED Portland Downtown hotel. Presented by Prosper Portland, Oregon Manufacturing Extension Partnership and Central Eastside Industrial Council, the program will include a hearty breakfast and the $35 registration fee also includes free parking in the hotel garage. This program is targeting manufacturers (non-food & non-clothing), and start-ups and makers that are focused on manufacturing. Our program format has been highly effective in helping manufacturers achieve the following:
• Generate new customers and suppliers
• Develop 25-30 new connections with other manufacturers
• Create new strategic partnerships
• Stimulate new innovative ideas
• Learn about resources to help your business grow
• Improving your company pitch
Our format is the driver of our program’s continued success. Attendees are separated into tables seating eight people for a 20-minute period. Each participant briefly introduces their company and product, followed by a facilitated discussion focused on participants products and capabilities, supply and procurement, innovative processes, business intelligence, and business strategy. Participants are assigned to a new table with new people after each 20-minute session. There will also be breaks between roundtables so that people can network.
