COLUMBUS, OH — The Ohio Black Expo will hold a press conference on Wednesday, March 16th. Local media will be briefed for approximately 20 minutes beginning at 10:00 AM at Venture Suite, 780 Mt. Vernon Avenue, Columbus, OH 43203 and the event will be live streamed for the public and other media outlets in the region.
The Ohio Black Expo returns to downtown Columbus Memorial Day Weekend and kicks off festival season with 4 days of events from Thursday, May 26th – Sunday, May 29th. With a business conference on Thursday, workshops and networking on Friday, and the Riverfront Culture Fest Saturday and Sunday, there is something for everyone! Visitors are expected from other Ohio cities and surrounding states to help boost the local economy.
Central Ohio will be the permanent home of the annual event that makes its return this year after the last in-person event took place in Columbus in 1991 at the former Franklin County Veterans Memorial. According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Ohio Black Expo was “Ohio’s largest minority consumer and business exhibit.”
Representatives, partners, and supporters will speak briefly regarding their involvement with the Expo and any questions will be answered by leadership. Founder Rhonda D. Robinson is excited to see the work of the organization continue.
