Welcome to the 10th Annual General Motors Supplier Connection event.  The GM Supplier Diversity Team is thrilled to host our signature event, once again, at our global headquarters.  Please join us at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center on Thursday, August 22, 2019 for a day of professional development & connecting opportunities.


We've redefined and transformed our focus for 2019.  "Driving Diversity Differently...A Future with Zero Crashes, Zero Emissions and Zero Congestion" is the premise of what we do here at GM.  Supplier Connections will provide all our attendees and exhibitors with an opportunity to learn more about the future of and with General Motors.  By attending our general sessions, each of our current and potential suppliers will gain a better understanding of what "Zero, Zero, Zero" future means for them.


GM Supplier Connections will provide access to an extensive number of diverse suppliers, a well as GM TIER 1 suppliers.  The afternoon will showcase over 100 of these suppliers by allowing walk-up tables with representatives from each company.  The abundance of opportunity will also extend to the exhibit floor, where attendees are encouraged to network with one another.  If you are seeking to improve your already robust supplier or band-new diversity program, need access to diverse suppliers with a proven track record of quality and service, or are a diverse company...this event should not be missed.
