The New Orleans Regional Black Chamber Of Commerce To Host “Biz To Biz” Breakfast And Trade Fair In September
NEW ORLEANS – Today, the New Orleans Regional Black Chamber of Commerce (NORBCC) announced it will host a “Biz to Biz” Breakfast and Trade Fair on Thursday, September 3, 2015, in the Celestin and Storyville Ballrooms at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, 601 Loyola Ave.
The breakfast will feature Clifton Taulbert, renowned author, speaker, and businessman.
More than 90 local small businesses will participate in the trade fair. Unlike traditional trade fairs, large companies from across the Greater New Orleans area will have a unique opportunity to directly engage with small business owners. Using this approach, the NORBCC expects the trade fair to generate new business opportunities for small businesses. Trade Fair booths are still available for purchase at $495 for non-members, which includes a one-year membership to NORBCC and two complimentary breakfast tickets, or $395 for members, which includes two complimentary breakfast tickets.
The trade fair is free and open to the public.
“We are so excited to host this amazing event for our small business owners,” said Michelle Gobert, Board Chair of the NORBCC. “Our Trade Fair has a unique model that we hope will attract large buyers to do business with our small businesses. The entire community is encouraged to attend this free event.”
The “Biz to Biz” Breakfast keynote speaker, Clifton Taulbert, is the President and CEO of The Freemount Corporation – an international human capital development company that services large and small businesses. Taulbert has been featured as a keynote speaker at the United Nations Assembly Hall, and as a guest on Voice of America, at the Library of Congress and Supreme Court. Clifton Taulbert is also the author of 14 books; including the Pulitzer-Nominated, The Last Train North.
“Biz to Biz” sponsorship packages are still available for non-members and small businesses. There are three levels of sponsorship opportunities. Packages range from $395 to $5,000, which includes advertisement in the “Biz to Biz” program, digital ads and print media as well as complimentary tables and/ or tickets to the breakfast and trade fair.
Registration for the event will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 3, with breakfast following at 9:00 a.m. The trade fair will immediately follow the breakfast at 10:30 a.m.
The “Biz to Biz” Breakfast and Trade Fair is in partnership with the city of New Orleans and sponsored by Liberty Bank, First NBC Bank, BlueCross BlueShield of Louisiana, Hyatt Regency New Orleans, The New Orleans Advocate, Freeman, and PSAV.
