Save the date for the 28th Annual Entrepreneurial Woman’s Conference, the oldest conference and business opportunities fair for women in business in the country, and the premier event for women business owners in the Midwest.  This year’s conference will be held September 17, 2014 at McCormick Place in Chicago. 

For 27 years the Entrepreneurial Woman’s Conference has offered women business owners real-world solutions to the current problems they are facing and the opportunity to increase the profitability of their businesses by building relationships with corporate and government buyers, business experts, and other women business owners. 


The Women’s Business & Buyers Mart is the tradeshow element of the Entrepreneurial Woman’s Conference, and is the oldest business opportunities fair for WBEs in the country.

The Mart provides an opportunity for the established woman business owner to enhance the profitability of her business by establishing relationships with corporate and government buyers, and with other entrepreneurs, seeking women-owned businesses as vendors and/or suppliers.  It also provides every woman business owner, from start-up to established, with the most current, top-notch business resources to assist with business efficiency and productivity.
