Omaha, NE, September 14, 2016– The Mountain Plains Minority Supplier Development Council (MPMSDC) is excited to conduct the first Minority Enterprise & Supplier Diversity Expo (ME Expo) in Omaha, NE. The presenting sponsors are Creighton University and MCL Construction. This event is being brought to you by ConAgra Foods and the Mountain Plains MSDC. The Council could not think of better partners to execute the first of many ME Expos to come. Both of these corporations received nominations in the 2016 Annual Awards Cycle for the Mountain Plains MSDC highlighting their on-going commitment to the Minority business community.

“The Council is thrilled to have corporate champions of such high caliber in the Omaha area that have stepped up to the plate and are working to conduct the first annual ME Expo. We look forward to ‘Opening Doors to New Horizons’ for many years to come.”
