You are Cordially Invited to CBOF 43


Please be among the very special attendees at the CBOF 43 “Rebound 2010: Connect, Drive, Thrive” on
March 29-31, 2010 Festival Hall “A”, Navy Pier on Chicago’s beautiful lakefront.

Hosted by the Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (CMSDC), CBOF has a distinguished history
as a catalyst for developing partnerships between minority and majority-owned corporations and government
agencies. CBOF is the oldest and largest procurement show in the nation devoted exclusively to multi-cultural and
multi-ethnic businesses and was the impetus to the development of the National Minority Supplier Development
Council, Inc. (NMSDC), a network of nearly 40 regional councils in major cities across the nation, Puerto Rico
and Canada.

The kick-off for CBOF 43 will be a Corporate sponsored networking reception. This is a great chance to meet,
greet and set the tone for business opportunities over the next few days.

On Monday, March 29th attend the Corporate Sponsored Networking Reception. On Tuesday, March 30th
you can attend Dynamic Workshops conducted by outstanding business leaders, and the CBOF 43 Dinner
Dance, featuring live entertainment. On Wednesday, March 31st, the Sponsors Breakfast will begin the day
with a prominent keynote speaker leading to the ribbon cutting and floor opening of the highly acclaimed 43rd
CBOF Trade Fair. CBOF 43 will honor minority business enterprises at the Minority Business Enterprise Input
Committee (MBEIC) Awards Luncheon. This event is designed to give recognition to MBEs, corporate and
government buyers and organizations that have shown exceptional commitment to business development. This
exciting day will culminate with the Topping Out Reception where fair attendees are encouraged to bring their
business cards for more one-on-one networking.

Please mark your calendars and plan to participate in this momentous occasion celebrating

“REBOUND 2010: CONNECT, DRIVE, THRIVE”!
