Named one of the Top 10 Black Business Expos Across the Country by BlackBusiness.Org, the 2022 Triad Minority & Women’s Business Expo presented by Maximum Enterprises, Inc. of Winston-Salem, promises to be bigger and better than ever! This will mark the ninth year of the event that highlights and provides a platform for the recognition and celebration of minority and women-owned businesses in the Triad Region and across the State. When asked what sets this expo apart from others, Reginald McCaskill, President and CEO of Maximum Enterprises, Inc., simply shared that they have "learned to adapt to the times that we are in while still providing a platform that allows them to cultivate, connect and create relationships and opportunities for minority and small businesses in the Triad area". This was seen in 2020 when the event was totally virtual due to heightened restrictions during Covid-19 and again at the 2021 Expo which was dubbed "One Event, Two Locations." Participants had the opportunity to shop with vendors at two locations throughout the Triad face-to face as well as virtually through a zoom platform. McCaskill shared that Expo 2022 will keep the same spirit of multiple locations but the events will be spread across three weekends this time around.
McCaskill adds that this year will also have a greater emphasis on KidzBiz vendors. These are young entrepreneurs who have a product or service and who have a desire to own their own business. "Young people emulate what they see, what better message to give them then the impact and power of minority business in their communities!" KidzBiz entrepreneurs will have their own section at each of the three locations for Expo 2022.
The Expo remains free and open to the public as it has been since its inception. Attendance at the event has grown exponentially year after year. With the addition of a third weekend of shopping small, minority, and women-owned businesses, organizers are preparing for hundreds of guests and business owners to take advantage of the opportunity to learn how to increase the success of their business while supporting minority and women-owned businesses.
