The Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce hosted a Greet the Purchasers event on the morning of Wednesday, October 3 at the Durham Convention Center. This event was a part of the City of Durham’s week-long celebration of Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week.

Greet the Purchasers allowed small and medium-sized businesses the opportunity to meet and network one-on-one with purchasing agents and decision makers from large companies and government agencies. Attendees learned the basics of purchasing protocol and how to become potential vendors for companies.

Confirmed companies had included: bioMerieux, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, the City of Durham, CREE, Duke Hospital, Duke University, Durham County, Eisai Inc., FHI360, Frontier Communications, Lenovo, PSNC Energy, Quintiles, RTI, Tekelec, and YMCA of the Triangle.
