Hundreds of exhibitors, workshops, food, and a lot of fun! The Florida Black Expo returns this week, Oct. 21 - 23! The Pollock Group and Thomas Media Group will host the tradition of showcasing minority-owned businesses and helping them build relationships with major companies.
It all kicks off Thursday with the Top 20 Under 40, an awards celebration honoring top, young leaders. Then, attend an eight-day virtual job fair beginning at noon on Friday.

The expo features education and entertainment with more than 100 retail exhibitors, corporations, and governmental agencies. Due to COVID-19 protocols, tickets are limited.
