  3. Select Small and Diverse Business Summit Sponsor you wish to meet with
  4. Send meeting request

Note: Due to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, this year’s Supplier Diversity Summit, a signature and intimate component of the Connect (X) conference, has been renamed Small and Diverse Business Summit, and will be held virtually on May 20- 21, 2020. According to a recent survey conducted by the NFIB Research Center, 92% of small business owners have been negatively impacted by the outbreak. WIA is committed to ensuring businesses in the wider wireless ecosystem have access and resources to survive during these unprecedented times.
