"WBENC CONFERENCE 2012"WE Magazine for Women is delighted to support the WBENC National Conference taking place in Orlando Florida from June 19- June 21, 2012.


For more than a decade and a half, WBENC has helped to open the doors of opportunity for WBEs. This important tradition will continue at the 2012 conference as WBENC continues to implement the Roadmap to 2020. The three-day conference will promote WBENC certification as the framework supporting the procurement requirements of corporate and government entities interested in doing business with women business enterprises. The event will also support WBENC-Certified WBEs who seek better access to procurement opportunities in these markets.


Workshops will focus on economic impact and job creation; entrepreneurial training; innovation, technology and sustainability; and the best ways to access capital and develop new markets.


Several well-known personalities, including New York Times best selling authors, nationally recognized business leaders and C-level executives will offer valuable insight on business trends, economic forecast and how to succeed in today’s marketplace.



Boasting more than 3,200 registered attendees, last year’s Business Fair was a resounding success. The one-of-a-kind event drew 325 exhibitors, including more than 100 WBENC-Certified WBE exhibitors from across the nation.

There is so much more! Including a Matchmaker Program, Silent Auction, Sponsorship Opportunities and more.
