Making Connections Count!


This signature event (formerly known as EXPO) is the largest WBEA event of the year with  between 1,200 to 1,500 attendees during the two-day conference.  The event includes six workshops and a  networking reception on Wednesday, May 16; while the tradeshow, one-on-one sessions, and the awards luncheon is held on Thursday, May 17.
It is the most important event for our members, and we encourage WBEs, Corporations, Government Agencies, and other Non-Profits to take part in this conference as it aims to cultivate relationships among corporations, their buyers and WBEs.
