Cleveland to host the “2006 Ohio Business Women’s Conference & Expo”

With hundreds of Women Business Owners expected to attend, the event promises to be the largest of its kind in the region for women in business. The two-day Women’s Conference & Expo will take place February 16 & 17, 2006 at the historic Cleveland Renaissance Hotel & Conference Center.

The Conference & Expo presented by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for Ohio, in collaboration with the SBA and an array of partners including, the Urban League, Northeast Ohio Minority Business Council (NOMBC), the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Cleveland and Columbus Chapters and a coalition of other Chambers of Commerce in the region; Is expected to attract hundreds of women business owners attendees and a large number of exhibitors.

The main mission of the Conference & Expo is to promote women’s business enterprises at all stages of development, by providing an unmatched forum in the region where women business owners can find the information and the tools necessary to expand their market.

And, to display their products and services to U.S.-America’s leading corporations and government agencies committed to doing business with women owned businesses. These corporations and agencies will join the conference from across the state and the nation as sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees.

During the two-day event, women business owners, senior corporate executives, supplier diversity and procurement professionals, community leaders and government officials, will make a difference by actively participating in an engaging agenda of activities and events, which includes networking activities, workshops, panel discussions, matchmaking procurement sessions and special events. Additionally, a highlight of the conference will be the Women Business Expo.

Bringing your business to Cleveland this coming February for this unprecedented event should have a big pay off for women who want to start new businesses or business owners looking to grow their companies by increasing their marketing opportunities with corporate America. As well as, for corporations who want to connect with the best women owned firms.       

The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for Ohio (HCCO): is a non-profit organization which grew out of a task force of Hispanic business owners in 1981 alarmed over the low participation in the private and public sector. The association was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1983. And its mission is to promote Hispanic Business interest and its economic development and expansion through strategic partnerships, technical assistance and advocacy.
