Expo encourages business opportunities for US women

An event bringing together America's leading corporations, government agencies, women business owners and affiliate organisations will take place in October, with the aim of increasing networking and contracting opportunities for enterprises owned and run by women.

The Women's Business Development Center’s (WBDC’s) second annual Conference & Business Expo is this year hosted by Office Depot, and will be held at the company's corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida on 15-16 October 2009.

2009 WBDC Conference & Business Expo"We are truly proud to partner with the Women's Business Development Center of Florida in putting on this critically important event for women in business," said Monica Luechtefeld, executive vice president of e-commerce and direct marketing for Office Depot.

The WBDC is the regional partner of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to America's corporations.

The WBDC provides WBENC national certification to ‘women business enterprises’ (WBEs). WBENC certification provides access to the nation's top corporations and government agencies through its internal vendor diversity programs, and other initiatives dedicated to promoting and assisting WBEs.
