Bingham McHale Hosts Launch of Indiana Supplier ePortal
On Dec. 2, 2009, Conexus Indiana will host a special luncheon to announce a new supplier database ePortal being launched by Conexus Indiana and IEDC. The event, part of its Manufacturing Connections quarterly luncheon series with Bingham McHale, will begin at 11:00 a.m. at the downtown offices of Bingham McHale, LLP.
Titled “Supplier INsight: A New Supplier/Procurement Matchmaking eTool for Hoosier Business,” the luncheon will provide suppliers with a preview of the etool and insight into how the database ePortal will support Indiana’s businesses. The project is in conjunction with the Indiana Secretary of State and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC).
Featured luncheon panelists include Todd Rokita, Indiana Secretary of State, Chad Pittman, IEDC Executive Vice President, Bob Potokar, President and CEO of Steel Parts Manufacturing Inc. located in Tipton, IN and Lisa Laughner, Conexus Indiana Program Director.
“The Supplier INsight ePortal will enable procurement organizations world-wide to easily connect with Hoosier suppliers. Hoosier suppliers registering in the ePortal will have a unique etool that will showcase their companies’ capabilities and will match them with procurement opportunities. Conexus Indiana and IEDC plan to launch the ePortal in early 2010,” said Lisa Laughner.
The next session of Conexus Indiana’s Manufacturing Connections series will begin in first quarter 2010, and will be the first luncheon of the year. All events are hosted by Bingham McHale, LLP.
