We understand the financial hardship many of our WBEs have experienced in the past two years – and most of us continue penny pinching today with rising inflation, supply chain issues and more. Though many of us are struggling, there is a huge cost savings benefit to the WBENC National Conference happening right here in our backyard in Atlanta: Travel costs are lower!

Know Before You Go

Here are some tips you may want to use to prepare for the conference in Atlanta:

  • Bring comfy shoes! There will be lots of walking in the over 300,000 square feet of arena space
  • If you haven't already booked a hotel, you can do so here
  • Check out the Exhibitor Directory so you have a leg up on whose booths you'd like to visit
  • Don't forget to bring your business cards! They're essential for networking whether they're print or digital. Or use the KUE, the QR code that will be distributed to all our GWBC certified WBEs as another contactless way to provide key information about your business and for you to collect information about your key customers.
