2022 CT Supplier Connection Growth Summit & MatchMaker
December 7, 2022 @ 9:00 am - December 8, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Wednesday, December 7, 9 am – 11:30 am

A FREE Virtual Summit for Connecticut Suppliers
In addition to matchmaking and networking with some of the region’s largest buyers, come learn more about state programs and gain insight from the experiences of other small businesses!
The 2022 Supplier Growth Summit and MatchMaker is designed to specifically help the region’s suppliers meet with large buyers and prime contractors in Connecticut, and strengthen the local supply chain community and its ability to grow in a post-pandemic market.
The centerpiece of the Supplier Growth Summit will be the virtual Business MatchMaker. Suppliers will have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with buying organizations. The virtual format allows us to expand the number of meetings and accommodate everyone’s schedule. MatchMaker meetings will take place over one and half days.
In 2021, we hosted over 160 supplier one-on-one meetings with buyers from the region’s largest corporations and buying groups. We also provide other useful knowledge sessions to help suppliers better understand the program’s available to help them grow. Additionally, through our twice-a-year Summits & MatchMaker sessions, we bring together members of leading buying organizations, state government, and other support organizations to increase awareness of various programs that are designed to assist small and diverse suppliers.
The 6th Annual Supplier Growth Summit is a free event sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Economic & Community Development and the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology.
