The Matchmaker event has become one of the premier matchmaking and networking events in the supplier diversity community. The event helps Chrysler Group’s minority supplier partners compete, expand and succeed. It allows MBE’s to interact with representatives from Tier One suppliers. It also helps Tier One suppliers maintain Chrysler Group’s mandate of 7.5 percent minority supplier content.

This year, the Company will pair nearly 200 of our minority suppliers with more than 1,500 suppliers to encourage networking and matchmaking opportunities. At the event, all of the participating suppliers display their products and services at booths, covering more than four floors of exhibit space.
