Dear Colleagues,

We are both honored and excited to be your Presenting Sponsors for the WBENC 2018 Summit & Salute and to help launch the next decade of WBENC in the same city where we began 21 years ago! We hope you join us at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas for three days of rich programming, networking, and celebrations. Our theme for the 2018 Summit & Salute is “Big Business Happens Here” and we look forward to seeing many big business opportunities blossom while we are together.

We invite you to participate in all this event has to offer, including prominent keynote speakers, engaging industry tracks, 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 2017 America’s Top Corporations for Women’s Business Enterprises; as well as, the WBENC WBE Stars representing the 14 Regional Partner Organizations.  

As the Presenting Sponsors, we are committed to the success of this event and the future of WBENC. We are all integral to the success and growth of this organization, WBEs and each other. We are on a great journey together to support and grow woman-owned businesses, break down barriers, and contribute to our local and national economies.

We will Join Forces and Succeed Together during our time in Dallas, a city that thrives on BIG opportunities, BIG business, and BIG successes!

See you in Dallas!
