Our Mission

The purpose of the Black Expo is to promote economic development through increased exposure for minority-owned businesses. African-American owned businesses have the opportunity to showcase their products and services to the public and procurement officers from major corporations and government entities. It is also an opportunity for major corporations and government entities to develop viable working relationships with minority-owned businesses while marketing their products and services to a growing consumer market.

The Expo is also a forum to educate, enlighten and inspire the entire community and the African-American community in particular. Aside from economic development, exposure to cultural resources is a part of the focus for this event.

What Participants Are Saying About Black Expo

“The Columbia Black Expo was the most enjoyable and rewarding event I have ever had the opportunity to work. The professionalism of the Black Expo staff and the opportunities they provided for me to reach my recruiting market was unparalleled. The Black Expo will always be an integral part of my marketing and advertising plan and it is my hope to grow the SC Army National Guard’s involvement with future events.”
SFC Don Sornson, Director, Marketing & Advertising, SC Army National Guard
“The Upstate Black Expo provided an excellent venue for Spartanburg Regional to showcase our services to both the business community and general public! The Health Pavilion allowed many of the Expo Attendees one on one time with medical professionals who could address the various health concerns that effect the African American community.

The entire week of events presented several excellent opportunities for Spartanburg Regional to expand our contacts by networking with various local, state and national community leaders.
