Business to Business Matchmaking – Lexington

The South Carolina Department of Commerce is pleased to host the 2017 South Carolina Aerospace B2B Supplier Matchmaker event Tuesday, August 29, 2017. This event is an opportunity for aerospace suppliers to connect with OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.


OEMs and Tier 1 companies evaluate their supply chains for best quality, delivery, and value, while suppliers seek the opportunity to further serve the aerospace industry. The Aerospace B2B Matchmaker is an industry focused “speed-dating” event between procurement representatives and potential manufacturing suppliers.

Last year’s OEM and Tier 1 participants included such companies as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Curtis-Wright, GKN, Wyman Gordon and Champion Aerospace.

Interested suppliers must first apply and be pre-screened for this event. If approved, registration costs are $50 per person for the B2B session. The event is open to companies with South Carolina operations only but can include direct and indirect suppliers.

Registration for the B2B Supplier event does not include admittance to the SC Aerospace Conference and Expo.  All B2B participants are also invited to register for the South Carolina Aerospace Conference, August 29-31, 2017 in Columbia at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, here.

To Apply

OEM and Tier 1 companies have expressed a desire to be able to pre-select suppliers of interest. Pre-application will be required and suppliers will be selected based on their products and services. If there are time slots remaining, all companies which have been pre-approved will be able to register for remaining slots on-line, on a first-come-first-served basis.

The event is open to companies with South Carolina operations only, but can include direct and indirect suppliers.
