HUB networking opportunity

030613Feature_PhillipsTony Phillips, UNCG’s HUB coordinator, and Trace Little, director of purchasing, will represent UNCG at the 2nd Annual Gate City Minority Business Opportunity Fair on March 7, 2013. The event is co-hosted by UNCG.

This networking event welcomes minority and women-owned businesses interested in contracting opportunities with local public institutions and governmental agencies. It’s a collaborative event with representatives from Greensboro/Guilford County/state agencies, universities, college and community colleges.

It will be held from 4-7 p.m. at the Galleria Events Center, 1325 S. Eugene St. Event attendees will also be able to learn about additional opportunities with event business sponsors.

The business fair is co-hosted by the East Market Street Development Corporation. It supports historically underutilized businesses (HUB’s), including minority and women-owned business enterprises.

At the table assigned for UNCG, Phillips and Little will explain future construction project opportunities and “The How To.”

Last year more than 150 people attended this event, says Phillips (seen in visual).
