Registration open for Minority Business Expo 2022

Minorities, women and veteran-owned businesses to be featured

The Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs (HHOMA) is excited to bring innovation and enterprising professionals together at the 8th Annual Minority Business Expo at the Charleston Civic Center Thursday, November 10.

This annual event brings together minorities, women business owners and veterans to promote growth and innovation in the Mountain State.

“This popular expo encourages business development in West Virginia and strengthens the inclusion of historically marginalized communities,” said Jill Upson, Executive Director of HHOMA. “Women, veterans, young entrepreneurs and all underserved West Virginians must be involved in the creation of businesses, licensure process, and full participation in the economic development of our great state.”

Attendees and exhibitors must register online by close of business on Monday, November 7. Attendance is free.

This year only HHOMA has waived registration fees on exhibit booth space for vendors, state agencies and nonprofits.

The 2022 Minority Business Expo will feature exhibits, networking opportunities, and guest speaker West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner.

The expo operates from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday, November 10, at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center, 200 Civic Center Dr, Charleston, WV 25301.
