The UK’s largest supplier diversity conference


For over 10 years, MSDUK have been dedicated to improving diversity in entrepreneurship and driving inclusive procurement. We believe that supplier diversity is an economic and moral imperative. Innovation comes from a diversity of perspectives, so when we limit who can contribute, we in turn limit what problems we can solve.

For its 6th time, MSDUK welcomes a global audience to the 2018 Conference & Awards in Birmingham. The two-day event is a must-attend conference for Ethnic Minority Businesses (EMBs) and Corporations looking to drive inclusive procurement and connect with diverse like-minded businessmen and women. Join our conference of diverse entrepreneurs, supply chain leaders, thinkers and doers and realise the power of differences.

“Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization.”

– Gandhi
