The Black Woman's Expo has become the nation's foremost exposition targeting African American consumers. The Washington, DC Expo will take place on several floors of the Carnegie Library, directly across from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. BWE is expected to draw approximately 50,000, and impact each attendee with current, valuable, relevant information and mixing it all up with fun and top-flight entertainment.
Every aspect of the Black woman's life is addressed and celebrated via a plethora of small and large events, specific themed pavilions, standing-room only seminars and general sessions addressing critical issues facing African American women– all presented by a five star roster of experts.
There are seven sponsorable pavilions– each connecting attendees to services and resources necessary to maintain their healthy, active lifestyles and their quality of life. Each pavilion offers seminars, demonstrations and interactive activities designed to empower, to educate and to improve quality of life.
The 2017 Pavilions include:
- Health & Wellness
- Home Decor
- Fashion & Style
- Cyber Cafe
- Food Sampling
- Kidz Korner
- Literary Cafe
The Expo augments all of this education and learning with top flight, high quality entertainment showcased daily on the Main Stage. There are show stopping local and national musical entertainment, fashion shows, a hair show, dance & theatrical performances to enjoy throughout the day.
There are more than 300 exhibitors and vendors offering an incredibly wide range of goods, services and information- all targeted to this active, engaged, brand-loyal, savvy consumer.

Many Black Expo women are business owners and leaders with higher education and want the best of everything in their lives -from what they wear, eat and drive to where they live, shop and travel. The Black Expo woman is more likely to purchase from a company that sponsors an event that she attends.
