News Release: May 16, 2014
The 15th WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council) National Conference & Business Fair will convene next month in Philadelphia, PA, June 23 – 25. The events will take place at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and the Philadelphia Marriott.
The theme for 2014 is “Join Forces. Succeed Together.” The event will focus on strengthening partnerships between WBENC members, with specific emphasis on strengthening the partnerships between certified WBEs (women’s business enterprises) as well as partnerships between larger corporate and government members.
The event will be hosted by the Philadelphia-based Women’s Business Enterprise Council of Pennsylvania, Delaware and Southern New Jersey (WBEC PA-DE-sNJ). Co-chairs for the 2014 event include Corporate Co-chairs Ernst & Young and Bristol-Myers Squibb, and WBE Co-chairs Arbill of Philadelphia and New Jersey-based IPAK.
More than 3,000 women business owners and corporate leaders are expected to come together this year in order to generate business and stimulate economic growth. Attendees ranging from women small business owners to Fortune 1000 enterprises will participate in workshops, general sessions, MatchMaker Meetings, networking events, and most notably WBENC’s Business Fair, the largest of its kind with over 300 exhibitors. Wexler Packaging Products will be exhibiting in Booth #639 at the Business Fair, which will be held in the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Wexler Packaging Products became a proud Certified Women-Owned Business in 2007. Obtaining WBENC Certification has proven to be an invaluable decision which has allowed Wexler to offer and receive countless business opportunities, specifically with companies that find importance in Supplier Diversity Partners.
WBENC is the nation’s largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women, and is a leading advocate for women-owned businesses. The organization is dedicated to expanding opportunities for WBEs and the corporations and government entities they serve. The WBENC National Conference & Business Fair is the largest of its kind in the United States and is open to everyone.
