Los Angeles, CA (September 12, 2020) – The Black Business Expo is a preeminent networking and business event that broke ground years ago will go virtual not only for Los Angeles but for Black entrepreneurs and companies all over the world, building an unprecedent online Black business community.  

Success Post-COVID-19: Navigating Our New Next” is the theme for this year’s Los Angeles Black Business Expo. Hundreds of our community’s most influential business leaders will join the Expo online from 9:00AM to 5:00PM PST on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at  Admission is $20.

Founded in 1989 by event producer extraordinaire and thriving entrepreneur Barbara Lindsey, The Los Angeles Black Business Expo re-emerges as the Premier Event for Black Business Empowerment, Networking, and Job Opportunities. “In the face of COVID-19 and its devastating impact on communities of color, now more than ever,  it is imperative to continue  our mission of promoting and empowering Black-owned businesses in the Greater Los Angeles region and beyond,” Lindsey stated.

Her legacy continues with this bold effort to take the Black business community online. With the help of community stakeholders in the past such as the late Harold Hambrick (2014) and Dr. Clyde Oden, the vision basically remains the same today: Support Black-owned to fuel the Black economy, locally, regionally, and nationally.

According to Nielsen research, Black consumers speak directly to brands in unprecedented ways as they achieve headline-making results. Through social media, Black consumers have brokered a seat at the table and are demanding that brands and marketers speak to them in ways that resonate culturally and experimentally if these brands want their business.  And with Black purchasing power being an astounding

 $1.4 trillion in 2019, it appears that Black Americans are a force to be reckoned with. 

This event will feature 50 speakers 48 sessions and 50  businesses including

Dr. George Fraser, founder of the largest African American networking conference for people of African-descent, The Power Networking Conference; Les Brown, internationally-renown motivational speaker and best-selling author; and more than 30 high-impact educational and informative workshops and seminars.
