Become an Exhibitor
The MBE is a way to give exposure to Black businesses and entrepreneurs as leaders in the public and private sectors grow more conscious of the need to diversify their supply chain to achieve true equity. As an exhibitor at the MBE, you will not only experience positive brand awareness before several thousand people for your organization, you will also gain the opportunity to make on-the-spot sales. This is more than just advertising – it is active marketing directly to decision-makers who are specifically searching for business owners like you.

Sponsor the Expo
Sponsoring the Massachusetts Black Expo is a dynamic way of promoting your company and showcasing its support for Black businesses throughout the Commonwealth. If your company provides a product and/or service for small businesses -- particularly minority-owned businesses -- then we invite you to showcase it at the MBE. It is the best way to connect your brand with hundreds of business owners.
Additionally, your sponsorship will help eliminate barriers to Black businesses seeking to showcase their products or services, allow us to provide resources and materials to expo attendees, and ensure our ability to make the event free and accessible to the general public.
View our sponsorship package or see below for the number of ways your company can become a key partner in this event:
Sponsor a specific area of the expo (i.e. Meet & Greet/Networking Lounge, Expo phone app, Registration, etc.)
Sponsor our Annual Meeting Awards Breakfast
Conduct workshops & product demonstrations throughout the day
