About the Event

On October 11th, 2019, join WomenVenture and 1,000 business professionals, community leaders, and other individuals as we come together to invest in the economic success of women at the 24th annual Women Mean Business Luncheon & Marketplace. Our vendor Marketplace will feature the products and services of over 30 women-owned businesses.

Vendor fees include admission to the luncheon & program portion of the afternoon, which includes our award ceremony for three women business owners, a dynamic keynote speaker, and emcee Jearlyn Steele. 

Event Overview

As a Marketplace vendor, you will receive:

  • One 8'x'10 booth space with one skirted 8' banquet table and two chairs, plus two event seats/meals at the luncheon*
  • The chance to promote your business to over 1,000 local business professionals, community leaders, and other individuals who attend the Luncheon
