For the first-time, Mackenzie participated in the annual Oregon Association of Minority Entrepreneurs Trade Show and Luncheon. The purpose of the show is to allow purchasers and buyers from both public agencies and private companies to network with small businesses. Nearly 130 booths were positioned throughout the Oregon Convention Center.
As we seek to grow our firm's economic and social impact with MWESB firms, Mackenzie staff participate in these shows and other meetings to continue to meet prospective vendors and consultants. In addition to shaking hands with business associates and acquaintances, Bill Bezio, Mackenzie's Director of Quality Assurance, and I had the opportunity to meet and chat with nearly 50 individuals who stopped by our booth over the span of four hours.
