In Pure Michigan Business, a unique aspect of the program are the “speed dating” summits aimed to establish buyer-supplier relationships through face to face meetings. These summits connect Michigan suppliers to organizations in and outside of Michigan that have real time need. Organizations such as Ford, Chrysler, Boeing, General Dynamics, DTE Energy, Consumers Energy, and many others partner with PMBC Summits to buy more in Michigan.
Since the launch, thousands of Buyer-Supplier meetings have been organized and future summits are in development with expectations to complete at least one per month.
