So that they can inform locally owned small, women-owned and minority businesses about vendor opportunities associated with a major expansion of its North Memphis distribution campus, Nike Inc. is holding two construction symposiums Feb. 7 and Feb. 8.
They’ll be Downtown at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys Law School. The two events will take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on both days, and they’re only for interested people and groups in the construction industry.
Representatives from the city-county Economic Development Growth Engine, the Mid-South Minority Business Council Continuum, the Black Business Association, the Memphis Office of Resource & Enterprise, the National Association of Women Business Owners and the Memphis Minority Contractors Association, in addition to others, will be on hand.
During the symposium, participants also will hear directly from Nike officials on the scale and timing of the project and how local companies can take advantage of opportunities to submit bids.
