The Sistahs in Business Expo (SIB Expo) will make the final stop of its 2018 tour in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, October 13.  The all-day event will take place from 10am – 4pm EST at the DeKalb Conference Center, located at 495 North Indian Creek Drive in Clarkston.

Created to celebrate, enhance and advance the numerous achievements of entrepreneurial women of color, the SIB Expo provides an accessible platform where such entrepreneurs of various trades and businesses of all sizes can significantly expand their reach and grow their ventures.  Vendor tables, live celebrity speakers and panels, and Q&A chats allow participants to sell products, network and gain insight on how to create, build and maintain a thriving business.

The Atlanta, Georgia finale will host over 65 diverse vendors displaying both products and services, and confirmed speakers include businesswoman and entrepreneur Nicole Walters, Miss Jessie’s CEO Miko Branch, sex therapist and TV personality Dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry, certified life & business coach and founder of Natural Girls Rock Kelly Jefferson, and author and international speaker Koereyelle Dubose.

After successful stops in Newark, NJ, Philadelphia, PA, and Columbia, SC, the SIB Expo is ready to teach, embolden, and inspire Atlanta participants and guests with power-packed panel discussions, networking opportunities, and an all-around enlightening experience.  Noted guests in previous cities included author, actress and entrepreneur Vivica A. Fox, founder and chairperson of Radio One Cathy Hughes, Emmy nominated journalist and NBC meteorologist Brittney Shipp, hip-hop pioneer MC Lyte, wealth expert Lynn Richardson, and Mayor Ras J. Baraka, just to name a few.


While other small business expos usually require costly vendor fees, the SIB Expo offers a more cost-effective option for small businesses, thereby guaranteeing entrepreneurs the ability to earn more on their investment.  The expo’s most unique quality is that the large majority of vendors will be businesses that are owned by women of color (the country’s largest growing demographic of entrepreneurs), thereby including and attracting a larger audience of entrepreneurial women of color and those who support them.
