This year’s forum, "Real Talk. Real Opportunities. Real Success." will feature a networking breakfast, a presentation of upcoming contract opportunities at the Airport and throughout the greater St. Louis region, followed by a number of business-building roundtable discussions you can attend. In addition, the forum will provide optimal networking and an exhibit hall featuring partners that can help you grow your business.

This must-attend event is uniquely designed to connect minority and women-owned companies with key decision makers to discuss upcoming contract opportunities. You’ll learn how to do business with the Airport, the Missouri Department of Transportation (MODOT), the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD), St. Louis County Government, and the federal government. Attendees will gain access to information on business financing, certification requirements and build relationships with firms ready to partner on future projects.
