Women’s Expo for National Business Women’s Day

Please note that this news brief has been corrected. The print version incorrectly stated that “food, beverages, a cash bar and a 15 second action-oriented business-intro opportunity” was part of the Women’s Expo, when it is in fact part of the Networking/Fundraising Event. Our apologies for any confusion this created.

Update: a new article on this event can be found here.

To celebrate National Business Women’s Day, the first Upstate Women in Business Expo will be held on September 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Organizers are looking for local-owned women businesses to participate as exhibitors.

This event was created to support women who are looking for ideas to build their own business, as well as for women who need avenues within which to network and connect in their communities.

A women’s networking event and fundraiser for Miracle Hill Ministries Shepherd’s Gate program has also been announced, to occur two days earlier, on Thursday, September 27 between 5:30 and 8 p.m. The event will include food, beverages, a cash bar and a 15 second action-oriented business-intro opportunity. The program aids women in dire need in the Upstate, providing essentials such as shelter and food. Fundraiser tickets are $100.

Cost to exhibit at the expo is $250 and includes a 6 foot table and 2 chairs, as well as a ticket to the networking / fundraiser event. The networking/fundraiser will provide additional opportunities for the business owners and exhibitors to share and network with other business owners who will be at the Upstate Women in Business Expo.

These events are opportunities to celebrate, and to share products, services, and concepts. 20 percent of all ticket sales will be donated to Miracle Hill Ministries.
