Minority Business Council Fall Conference and Expo 

Join Us for this year's in person Annual Fall MBC Conference and Expo! Hosted by the Minority Business Council of the City of Virginia Beach. The Conference and Expo is designed to provide education, inspiration, one-on-one engagement with Hampton Roads resource partners, procurement professionals, and business owners looking for key opportunities to help in their quest for business excellence.

This year's theme is "Grow.Build.Succeed!" This year, we are pleased to announce that this year's joint speakers are Amazon, Panattoni, and Conlan Construction Company to discuss Project Beach. This is a unique opportunity to learn more about the innovative collaboration between these three industry leaders and their vision for the future of construction and logistics.

Panattoni Development Company has become synonymous with first class, proven performance for clients throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. Panattoni's history began as an industrial developer and that still remains true today. They have a proven track record in the development, construction, and management of industrial space through their experienced professionals operating from a large network of offices. Whether the development is local, national or international, Panattoni can respond quickly to the client’s development needs.

The Conlan Company has a philosphy that "relationships start with doing a good job. When you do a good job, people want ot keep working with you. That has been their philosophy since CEO Gary Condron founded Conlan in 1987 as a small commercial contractor working on projects around the growing metro Atlanta area. They were determined to deliver the best-in-class results on time and within budget. Satisfied customers were happy with the work they did – which brought more work – a trend that continues to define our growth story. Building successful teams to help their clients achieve their goals is Conlan's motivation every day.

Since founding, we’ve grown our relationships and operationsto cover most of the conuntry. They're licensed from the East Coast to California and presently work projects across the country. Even though Conlan is a nationally recognized commercial contractor and a leader in the light industrial construction, they still approach every opportunity like it’s our only one and every client as a valued partner. Only team successes are true successes.
