The Virginia Black Business Expo 2021 is scheduled for September 10-12 at the Fredericksburg Expo Center. Ernisha aims to double attendance from last year and plans to have up to 150 vendors on site.
“This year we will have even more to do,” said Tracey. “Last year, as it was away, it made the entry a bit difficult. But now we will all be together in an interactive environment, full of opportunities to network and connect with some of the top companies in the Virginia Black Business Directory.
Exploring the 2nd Annual Black Business Expo schedule, highlights include a big Blacksby launch party and jazz brunch to be held at the host hotel Holiday Inn Fredericksburg Conference Center on Sanford Drive, panel discussions featuring black business leaders, quick networking opportunities, concerts and poetry shows, and other activities. Day tickets to the expo start at $ 15 with various weekend packages and activities available.
“We have suppliers from Hampton Roads, Petersburg, Charlottesville and more,” Ernisha said. “This is open to all throughout [D.C., Maryland and Virginia]. So we invite everyone to go out, shop and have a good time.
Through the exhibition and all its efforts, there is an undeniable community spirit.
“We are very proud of where we are and the direction we are taking,” said Ernisha. “We are pushing for community collaboration…. We want people to work together instead of seeing others as competitors. It does us good to see companies working together.
