OAME announces the Pacific Northwest’s largest minority, women, and emerging small business luncheon and tradeshow
OAME is presenting its 27th Annual Luncheon and Trade Show Thursday, May 7, 2015 beginning promptly at ten o’clock am and concluding at three o’clock pm. This event will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in Exhibit Hall D.
The tradeshow will host over 130 small and large businesses exhibitors; state, county and federal government agencies; and business development resources that assist minority, women and emerging small businesses. Tradeshow admission is free and luncheon tickets are still available for $75.
“The OAME Trade Show is a personal, face-to-face forum to make sales, network and obtain resources among businesses large and small, new entrepreneurs, business development and coaching resources,” quoting Sam Brooks, OAME founder and chairman of the board.
This year’s theme is Meeting Future Challenges. A panel presentation will focus on changing demographics, environmental changes, technological breakthroughs, and the internationalization of business. Each panelist will provide examples of how these topics will impact us in the future and how to prepare for them.
