2013 MED Week Conference

Over the last thirty years, the Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week brand and conference format has been broadly accepted and synonymous with quality support for the development and recognition of minority-owned firms. MED Week is more than just an event, for MBDA it is a part of our core mission to promote the growth and global competitiveness of minority-owned businesses. In 2013 we did not host a National MED Week conference. A private ceremony was held at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington, DC honoring the 2013 National MED Week award winners. We invite you to continue to celebrate the spirit and traditions of MED Week through honoring our leaders in the minority business community today and every day.
