On August 1, 2014 from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (local time), the Indiana Department of Administration Division of Supplier Diversity, City of Gary and Majestic Star Casino will host the 2014 Northwest Indiana Business Conference at Majestic Star Casino in Gary, IN. 

This conference is an opportunity for small business owners to gather essential resources and information from state agencies, universities, as well as from private sector corporations and organizations to successfully do business in Indiana. The conference agenda includes featured minority-, women- and veteran-owned business exhibitors, business workshops and expert panel discussions.

The workshop offerings will include:

You will receive valuable information about getting your firm certified as an MBE, WBE, DBE, IVBE and federal programs through SBA.
  • There will also be a presentation on how to register your veteran-owned business through VetBiz, which is necessary for a veteran-owned business to qualify as an Indiana Veteran Business Enterprise (IVBE).
