The Rigel Awards Luncheon is held on October 6th November 5th at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Grand Ballroom from 11:30 A.M.-1:30 P.M. This luncheon hosts over 1,200 businesses which includes sponsors, exhibitors, business owners, and political officials. Special seating arrangements are made in advance to provoke networking opportunities between buyers and suppliers as we celebrate the success and dedication of our Rigel Stars.
Each year the Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC) presents the Rigel Awards to minority business enterprises (MBEs), corporate leaders and major corporations who have made a significant impact in the development of minority businesses and have gone far beyond all expectations. These recipients exemplify their dedication with generosity, innovation and passion. Their light shines bright in minority business development!
What is the Rigel Star?
The Rigel Star is a blue super giant star that shines with the luminosity of approximately 85,000 times that of the Sun. It can be found in the Orion constellation, 700-900 light-years away. The Rigel’s radiant characteristics stand out among the other stars. It is only befitting that we recognize our Rigel stars at the EXPO Awards Luncheon to demonstrate how they continue to stand out.
