The MBE Manufacturers Summit’s most popular event returns in 2023!

Building Relationships

The National MBE Manufacturers Summit “Fast Pitch” sessions are returning in person for our 2023 Summit. Designed to connect MBE manufacturers with corporations, suppliers, and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the Fortune 1000 and beyond, these 15-minute meetings allow participants to build professional relationships and move their businesses forward.

During each meeting, there will be a quick exchange of background information and the sharing of each organization’s business needs. Most importantly, “Fast Pitch” allows MBEs to share their capabilities with sourcing professionals. This is an opportunity for your company to start and build relationships that may lead to mutually beneficial business deals in the future.


To date, the companies committed to participating in Fast Pitch sessions are below. We are constantly adding new partners so make sure you check the website for updates!


When MBEs register for the National MBE Manufacturers Summit, they are given a link to complete a profile of their company. We send these profiles to the corporations two weeks before the Summit. Corporations select the MBEs they will meet with and our technology schedules the meetings. MBEs and corporations will receive confirmations for all meetings scheduled.  Fast Pitch sessions will occur from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on August 14th. However, networking is not limited to these quick sessions – the Summit is designed for continuous meetings throughout the event.

Fast Pitch sessions are only available to registered Summit attendees. To participate, register for the Summit here. For additional information or inquiries, please contact
