Registration is now open for MassHousing's 23rd Annual Greater Boston Minority and Women Business Enterprise Trade Fair, which will be held Thursday, April 25 in Randolph.
The event provides an opportunity for minority- and women-owned business enterprise (MBE/WBE) owners to connect with the representatives from property management companies, general contractors, developers, government agencies and others in attendance. Last year, 121 MBEs and WBEs exhibited their businesses to more than 500 attendees at the Greater Boston event. MassHousing also hosts a Western Mass. Trade Fair in November.
MassHousing trade fairs are one way in which the Agency works to ensure that minority- and women-owned businesses share in the economic opportunities created by the rental housing communities we finance and oversee. Our staff works closely with general contractors and property management companies to set and achieve goals for MBE and WBE utilization. We also host workshops and other events to help MBEs and WBEs better their marketing, business development and operations.
