MGM Mirage Recognized by Multicultural Businesses - Tuesday 31st of January 2006

LAS VEGAS – MGM Mirage has been cited as one of the top corporations in the U.S. for multicultural businesses by DiversityBusiness.com, the leading B2B online portal for diversity businesses and large organizational buyers.

According to Kenton Clark, president & CEO, DiversityBusiness.com, the recognition is based on factors such as volume, consistency and quality of business opportunities that a company grants women and minority-owned suppliers. MGM Mirage is the only gaming company to be recognized by DiversityBusiness.com.

"Those organizations that buy the most products and services, most consistently, from diversity businesses, and that sustain the most mutually beneficial business relationships with their multicultural suppliers, should be recognized not only by the suppliers but also by the general public," Clark said.

More than 500,000 business owners had the opportunity to participate in the online election to select the top companies. The leading companies will be awarded during the 6th Annual Multicultural Business Conference at MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, March 29 - 31, 2006.

"The significance of this recognition is that it comes directly from the business community," said Mark Stolarczyk, MGM Mirage Vice President of Purchasing. "Our desire is to increase our portfolio of companies that can provide high-quality products and superior services at competitive prices."
