Fees have been customized with the appropriate discounts for NVBDC Certified SD/VOBs, Corporate Members and Resource Partners, to avoid any need to use promo-codes.

Some of the new features provide an opportunity for multiple attendees from the same company to participate in the conference. NVBDC is making sure that our attendees are informed and prepared prior to the event in order to gain maximum exposure during the event.
New features & additional enhancements:
1:1 matchmaking sessions are a vital part of 2021 NVBDC Connect. We know matchmaking is key for veteran suppliers to present their company to corporate supplier diversity professionals. Starting on Monday, September 20, corporations get the first opportunity to set up matchmaking appointments. Then on Monday, October 25, all attendees will have the opportunity to request a matchmaking appointment to get schedules organized prior to the event.
Attendees need to know if an appointment is accepted or declined in order to fill up their event schedule. All corporate requests sent to veteran businesses are automatically accepted and emailed to the veteran businesses. When a veteran business requests a matchmaking appointment with a corporation they are required to accept or decline the meeting. We have introduced a 48-hour time limit for corporations to respond to an appointment request or it will expire. These enhancements will help all attendees organize their conference calendar.
