Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,

We are very excited to be your Presenting Sponsors for the WBENC 2017 Summit & Salute where we will be celebrating 20 years of WBENC! We hope you join us at the New Orleans Marriott in Louisiana for three days of rich programming, networking, and festivities.  Our theme for the 19th Annual Summit & Salute is “Reflection & Vision”. We will reflect on WBENC’s rich history as well as create excitement and anticipation with the vision for WBENC’s future.

We look forward to participating in all that this event offers, including prominent keynote speakers, engaging workshop sessions, the Procurement Opportunity Connection with both Meet & Greet and 1:1 MatchMaker meetings, and of course, the Salute! Dinner.  We are excited to honor and celebrate the 2016 America’s Top Corporations for Women’s Business Enterprises as well as the WBE Stars from the past twenty years.  We will join WBENC in honoring leaders, past and present, who have shaped this organization over two decades.

As the Presenting Sponsors we are committed to the success of this event, as well as the future of WBENC, in which each of you plays a part and helps to weave the fabric of our diverse and successful community. We are on a great journey together to support and grow Women’s Business Enterprises, breaking down barriers, and contributing to our local and national economies.

We will Join Forces and Succeed Together during our time in New Orleans, a city with a rich history that is known for hosting great celebrations, the perfect location for an anniversary event.

Laissez les bons temps rouler! Let the good times roll!

See you in New Orleans!
