“Success Post-COVID-19: Navigating Our New Next” is this year’s theme for The Los Angeles Black Business Expo. Hundreds of our community’s most influential business leaders, business owners and consumers will join the Expo online, which returns on Saturday, September 12, 2020.  

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. 

The legacy continues the vision of origin. That vision borne to Barbara Lindsey, Harold Hambrick (date of death), and Dr. Clyde Oden remains the same: Support Black-owned Businesses to fuel the Black economy, locally, regionally and nationally. 

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

This event will feature more than 40 speakers and over 60 businesses including 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.
