The Women’s Business & Buyers Mart is the tradeshow element of the Entrepreneurial Woman’s Conference, and is the oldest business opportunities fair for WBEs in the country.
The Mart provides an opportunity for the established woman business owner to enhance the profitability of her business by establishing relationships with corporate and government buyers, and with other entrepreneurs, seeking women-owned businesses as vendors and/or suppliers. It also provides every woman business owner, from start-up to established, with the most current, top-notch business resources to assist with business efficiency and productivity.
For 26 years, the Mart has helped successfully establish business relationships between women-owned businesses and the purchasing departments of major corporations and government agencies. With over 200 purchasing entities and over 2,000 attendees, the Mart remains one of the most well-attended and successful business opportunities fairs for WBEs in the country.
