Cummins welcomes its existing supplier partners and potential partners to register for its diverse supplier conference.
We are excited to welcome you to the 2018 Cummins Diverse Supplier Conference!
The theme this year is Winning Together. In an effort to share critical initiatives, celebrate successes and improve our collaboration with diverse suppliers, we are looking forward to convening in Indianapolis, Indiana, for this two-day event, which will combine more than 250 suppliers from various industries and the Cummins leaders who work with them.
The conference will begin the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018, with breakfast and a general session at The Westin Indianapolis. After a brief welcome, we will spend the day providing updates on our strategic initiatives and other information that’s key to maintaining a strong partnership. That evening, we will host a special reception, where you will have the opportunity to network with fellow suppliers and Cummins sourcing team members. The event will then continue on Wednesday, Sept. 12, when we will hold breakout sessions with our business units and sourcing leaders to discuss Cummins’ priorities and new and existing opportunities for suppliers. The conference will wrap up by 2:00 PM (EDT).
Throughout the conference, we will engage in productive conversations, enjoy delicious food and introduce you to many of our new Cummins leaders. The full agenda will be posted soon, and we encourage you to check this site frequently leading up to the conference for additional updates. We hope you will join us for this fun and productive event. Please note that maximum two (2) participants from each supplier may register for the conference due to the limited capacity of the venue.
Participants: Cummins Suppliers (Limit 2 guests per supplier) and Cummins Leaders.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Holly Zhu ([email protected]) with the Global Diversity Procurement team. We look forward to seeing you in September!
