Lisa Nichols Headlines Minority Business Expo

Aug 1, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Lexington’s Minority Business Expo celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. As Josh James reports, the expo gets underway Thursday.

The expo, which looks to connect smaller minority-owned and women-owned business with larger companies and train them for success, has grown over the years. This year, the event will move to larger rooms at the Lexington Convention Center.

"Over the years the break out sessions, the speakers, and of course the one-on-ones have actually led to contracts and opportunities for them and as a result come back more because they want to see if more opportunity is available," says expo co-chair Anthony Wright.

The expo will include talks from designers Shane and Shawn Ward, creators of the Shane&Shawn shoe collection, and best-selling author Lisa Nichols, who has appeared on Oprah and NBC’s Starting Over.
