    DESCRIPTION

    Wynn Boston Harbor is seeking local and minority-, woman-, and veteran-owned businesses for over $90 million in Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment (FF&E) purchases for the new Wynn Boston Harbor Resort in Everett.

    Wynn is committed to the local business community, in particular businesses located in our Host Community of Everett and Surrounding Communities of Malden, Medford, Boston, Chelsea, Cambridge, and Somerville.

    We invite you to learn more about these opportunities and meet with the Wynn FF&E purchasing team. Please note that Wynn typically works with vendors that directly manufacture or fabricate products, rather than brokers or distributors. This focus of this event is FF&E purchasing, NOT operational purchasing. Purchasing for resort operations, including food and beverage products, paper products, promotional products, perishable and replenishable products, will be the subject of a future event. Please see a detailed list of FF&E purchasing areas below.

    Program for the event will be as follows:

    8:30 AM – 9:00 AM Check-in

    9:00 AM Welcome

    9:15 AM Presentation covering Wynn purchasing standards, timelines, volumes

    10:00 AM – 12:00 PM 1-on-1 vendor meetings with Wynn purchasing team (vendors will be notified in advance of time slots)

    All vendors must be registered as a non-gaming vendor with the Massachusetts Gaming Commission prior to executing a purchasing agreement with Wynn. We encourage interested vendors to begin this process by visiting www.massgaming.com. (Emphasis ours)
