POP Marketplace



Power of Partnering Marketplace (POP) is an annual conference in Atlanta bringing together hundreds of women entrepreneurs, business leaders, corporations and procurement professionals. This two-day conference delivers valuable connections, training, innovative thinking and takeaways designed to help you reach your procurement and business goals.



Meet the Buyer

One of the main highlights of the POP Marketplace Conference is the featured procurement opportunity for certified WBEs. We are providing an opportunity for our WBEs to sit and have a conversation with a major corporation with capacity for partnership or to discuss Best Practices in order to build a partnership with the corporate. Participants get 5 minutes at a table with 6 fellow WBEs and 1 corporate buyer to share their business stories. Our goal is to continue providing an environment that raises the bar on Strategic Sourcing and Sustainability.

Another POP Marketplace Conference procurement opportunity is the Match Maker Sessions. We are committed to matching our certified WBEs with companies who have a specific opportunity in the pipeline and require a specific commodity or service. During these intentionally matched, 10-minute sessions with a Buyer, certified WBEs are given the opportunity to discuss the very specific needs of the corporation. Our goal is to create a powerhouse of opportunities for constituents and further increase corporate engagement.
