New Date Announced
November 29th and 30th

EXPO is one of the most successful events of its kind throughout the nation. It serves the important purpose of bringing minority business owners face to face with many of the nation’s top business decision makers. On average, one in four participating minority business owners is able to convert a contact made at EXPO into a contract within eight months of the show. Now that is results!

EXPO continues to demonstrate why Houston is ranked the #1 City for minority businesses in the nation! It is the place to establish new and renew existing business relationships and learn about the growing business sectors in Houston’s economy. Business relationships are forged and fostered between corporations, government entities, educational institutions and other MBEs throughout this exciting 2 day event.

Two of the most popular aspects of EXPO are the one-to-one sessions and direct connect meetings. EXPO offers minority-owned businesses the opportunity to meet key buyers and decision-makers through pre-scheduled one-to-one sessions and direct connect meetings at an exhibitor booth.

Join us at EXPO where we continually strive to raise the bar and create opportunities for MBEs that are Rooted in Business and Growing in Diversity.

NOTE: Refunds will not be issued for EXPO. EXPO has been rescheduled and all registrations (both Exhibitor and General Attendee) will be rolled over to the new event date.
