NEW YORK— Time is running out to register for this year’s CelebrASIAN Business Development Conference, presented by The US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC). The virtual event will be held November 8-10 and offer a series of panels, roundtable discussions, and meet-and-greet networking sessions that bridge industry leaders with Pan Asian American and other minority- and diverse-owned small businesses.
For over thirty years, the non-profit USPAACC has connected Pan Asian Americans and their related groups in business, sciences, the arts, sports, education, and public and community services with Fortune 1000 corporations, government, non-profits to promote and propel economic growth. Their annual culmination of those efforts, the CelebrASIAN Business Development Conference, celebrates and uplifts partnerships between those entities for a mutually beneficial amplification of voices.
Kicking off three days of engaging programming will be a fireside chat with Wells Fargo & Company, CEO and President, Charles Scharf, joined by other industry forces including Chetan Kandhari (SVP, Chief Innovation and Digital Officer, Nationwide), Kiran Vuppu (CIO, Commercial and Corporate & Investment Banking Technology, Wells Fargo & Company), Marqus Hutchinson (CTO, Intelligent Waves), Rikin Thakker (CTO, Wireless Infrastructure Association), and Kamal Agarwal, PhD (Department Chair and Associate Professor, Howard University). Each will lead interactive discussions that will illuminate strategic insights to grow individual business and provide resources across key areas of professional development: procurement, subcontracting, new customer acquisition, cost-savings analysis, and green innovations.
New this year will be a meaningful Business Development Roundtable opportunity, where attendees can pitch their businesses directly to high-level decision-makers with the goal of securing and fulfilling new contracts.
