PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Mar 28, 2013) - As a part of Wynn Philadelphia's commitment to cultivating community involvement and diversity, the resort is organizing the first Wynn Philadelphia Construction Supplier, Subcontractor and Vendor Outreach Event on April 3, 2013.
The networking event, hosted by Keating Consulting and the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) Business Center of Pennsylvania, will take place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Philadelphia at Penn's Landing.
"Wynn Philadelphia is the largest proposed private development in the city's history," said Gamal Aziz, President and COO of Wynn Resorts Development. "We're excited to begin building relationships with local and statewide minority and women-owned construction supplier firms interested in working on our construction team, and becoming an integral part of Wynn Philadelphia's future. This is the first of many events we will hold to encourage participation and support supplier diversity for Wynn Philadelphia."
The networking and informational event is expected to bring together more than 150 construction subcontractors and minority and women-owned construction and construction supplier firms from across the Mid-Atlantic region.
