According to Nielson, if it were a standalone country, the US Hispanic market’s buying power would be a top-20 world economy. Ranked the nation’s fourth fastest growing market, the Washington metro area Hispanic market greatly impacts/influences this standing.  
 
This year’s Expo is going to be larger and better than ever! Throughout the day, the Expo will once again offer panels and business development activities designed to guide participants in securing government and corporate procurement contracts, promoting their own businesses, conducting business overseas, and more. The Chamber’s partnerships with local organizations and agencies serving metro area businesses help assure the content quality and relevance of Expo activities.

The GWHCC Business Expo continues to grow!
Participation in the Expo has increased from 500 attendees in 2010 to over 1,400 in 2013. This year, we are anticipating more than 2,000 attendees and 130 exhibitors. Don't miss the opportunity to grow your network and take advantage of this business opportunity!

Why attend the Fourth Annual GWHCC Business Expo?

The Business Expo will provide attendees, exhibitors and sponsors in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area with opportunities to connect with potential clients and find resources to grow their businesses.

What to do at the Expo?

Connect with the Local Hispanic Business Community – According to Nielson, if it were a standalone country, the US Hispanic market’s buying power would be a top-20 world economy. Ranked the nation’s fourth fastest growing market, the Washington metro area Hispanic market greatly impacts/influences this standing.  The Expo is an excellent opportunity to meet leaders of the Hispanic business community face‐to‐face and establish the relationships that would allow your business to gain access to the local Hispanic market.
 
Meet Buyers and Decision Makers – Interact with the 130 exhibitors that will be showcasing their businesses. Additionally, the Business Matchmaking Sessions will allow you to meet decision makers that purchase goods and services in local and federal government agencies, large organizations and corporations.

Attend Business Workshops – Topics will include Marketing to Hispanics, How to Do Business with DC, MD, and VA Governments, Learning from Successful Hispanic Business-Owners, Federal Procurement, Overseas Investment Opportunities, and more.

Explore International Business Opportunities – Latin American Embassies will be present to showcase unique business opportunities.

Get covered - Get informed and enroll yourself, family or busines in the District's health exchange with DC Health Link. The Chamber will host an ‘Enrollment Day’ with insurance companies, brokers and assisters on site to enroll District residents and small businesses before the March 31st deadline. 

Network, network, and network – Join us for the Business Expo Closing Reception from 
5:00pm- 7:00pm where Hispanic restaurants will serve samples of their delicious Latin-inspired cuisine and enjoy live Latin jazz.
