The DMV ( Washington DC Metropolitan Area- DC, MD, NoVA) was in for a treat Saturday, August 7, 2021. For the first time, Sistahs in Business Expo was held in the DC area. We were on the beautiful campus of the University of Maryland College Park. The DMV stop featured Cynthia Bailey-Hill, serial entrepreneur and cast member of the Real Housewives of Atlanta and fierce business woman and creator of " Dinner with Bevy", Bevy Smith.
Founder and CEO, Aisha Taylor Issah, kicked off the event with a prayer with the over 75 vendors before opening the doors to the attendees. A successful entrepreneur herself and ordained minister, prayer is a part of everything she does. The excitement of having the Expo in the DMV was evident throughout the day.
Sistahs in Business Expo was launched in 2017 and is a multi-city venture. The next stop after the DMV is Atlanta, Georgia, September 18 and Newark, New Jersey in October. You leave the Expo feeling inspired, motivated, and determined to do more in your business. There is great opportunity for networking and supporting other entrepreneurs. Two outstanding panels were held: The Signature SuperPower Panel with Toni Brown, Eulica Limber, Regan Farley, moderated by Keisha Brewer and the Protect Your Brand Panel featuring the SIBEXPO DREAM TEAM: Jacqui Stallworth, Alysha Harvey, Melanie Cunningham, moderated by Aisha Taylor Issah.
Sistahs in Business Expo, we sure hope the DMV is a part of the tour next year!
