Closing the Gap of Mid GA, in partnership with the Warner Robins Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., will host a Juneteenth Summer Celebration and Black Business Expo on Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 9am-8pm, at Curtis Office Suites and Event Center, located at 2050 Watson Boulevard, Warner Robins, GA  31093. The event will provide an opportunity for business owners to network and display their goods and services to a diverse audience. Furthermore, this Juneteenth Celebration will offer FREE admission to all guests for all events; therefore, we anticipate an estimated 150-200 attendees throughout the course of the day. Juneteenth Celebration activities will include a health fair, business expo, teen summit, ‘State of Black Business’ panel discussions with business leaders and experts, an opportunity to meet and greet local candidates, and live entertainment. We are seeking business professionals to serve on the discussion panels, and are inviting families to come out and take advantage of the fun events and resources that will be available to them.

Vendor opportunities (exhibitor booths) are available for the event. Costs are $25.00 for outside space, and $35.00 for inside space.  Vendors must provide their own tables.
