MGM Mirage Hosts 2006 Diversity Expo - Sunday 16th of April 2006

LAS VEGAS – MGM Mirage will host its third Diversity Expo next month in Las Vegas at The Mirage Events Center. The Expo will feature all of the company's properties and corporate units including Construction, Corporate Retail and Corporate Purchasing. Business owners will have the unique opportunity to meet with key purchasing agents to identify potential business opportunities and to better understand the protocol of conducting business with the casino company.

"MGM Mirage has designed the Diversity Expo to serve as an open house, inviting any vendor who wants to conduct business with our company to come and learn about our process," said Mark Stolarczyk, MGM Mirage Vice President of Corporate Purchasing. "Our company strives to expand its database of suppliers who now have more opportunities to do business with our company."

As a result of last year's merger between MGM Mirage and Mandalay Resort Group (MRG), the former MRG properties will be represented at the Expo for the first time. The Expo, which will take place May 10, will feature workshops and panel discussions to provide attendees with information on how to conduct business with MGM Mirage. Company executives will discuss bid opportunities in various departments including Food and Beverage, Hotel Operations, Casino Operations, Housekeeping, Engineering, Advertising, Marketing, Special Events and Security. Additionally, as MGM Mirage requires minority certification, several certifying agencies will have booths to provide information on the certification process.

Registration for the Expo is free if registered by April 30, 2006. The cost to register is $25 after April 30, 2006. The event is open to all existing and prospective vendors and contractors serving the gaming and hospitality industry.
