Message from Secretary Hitt: Find your business match

"Nothing reinforces a professional relationship more than enjoying success with someone." Those words by legendary writer, director and comedian Harold Ramis ring true today, as Team South Carolina works to connect industry across the state and around the world. Our goal is to create an environment where business leaders have opportunities to develop mutually-beneficial relationships to ignite economic growth. 

One way we accomplish this is through business-to-business (B2B) supplier matchmaker events. They provide meaningful networking opportunities for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and in-state suppliers. 

The upcoming S.C. Automotive B2B Supplier Matchmaker, taking place during the annual South Carolina Automotive Summit in February, will give suppliers a venue to meet first-hand with major players in South Carolina's automotive industry with the goal of generating new business connections. Our team is revamping this year's matchmaker event to allow for even more engagement with OEM and tier one companies by introducing an open format for networking, along with a panel discussion about growing your business. 

Relationships are the backbone of industry, and our B2B events are one of the many opportunities Team S.C. provides to help businesses work together and find that perfect match.
