Event is free
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Sept. 22, 2016) — The Louisville Metro Diverse Business Fair will return for a second year, from 8 a.m. to noon on Oct. 25 at the Tavern at Fourth Street Live. The event is free to attend.
Created last year, the fair is designed to bring minority and women owned local businesses together with larger corporations in an effort to promote their businesses and services. All minorities, female, and disadvantaged business entity owners, or their representatives are invited to participate.
“Last year, the fair was successful in connecting groups who may not have known they could do business with each other. The key was finding a place to bring them together to talk and explain what services are needed and what services can be offered right here in our city,” said Councilman David Tandy (D-4). “With Louisville’s still growing economy, it is even more important to help those companies large or small right here in our area to grow and create jobs. This is a starting place.”
To gain admission a business entity must either be certified with the Louisville Metro Human Rights Commission or in the process of completing such certification.
For those businesses that have not currently certified or in the process of being certified as an MBE, WBE or DBE they can start the process and attend the business fair on site.
