ATLANTA – The Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Conference and Expo networking mixer was a magnet for urban sophisticates representing the entire spectrum of business industries. It was also a case of serendipity for 10 unsuspecting beneficiaries of BE’s magnanimity as they won free tickets to the coveted conference in May.

Educators, legislators, entrepreneurs, businesspeople and civic leaders converged at the Emerging Art Scene Gallery in the eclectic Castleberry Hill section of Atlanta for “An Evening with Black Enterprise” to sample delectable cuisine and sip Remy Martin. The Entrepreneurs Conference takes place at the august Marriott Marquis hotel in downtown Atlanta, May 22-25, 2011.

Sponsored by Shawnnell Brown, CFO Leasing, Remy Martin and Word of Mouth, the business mixer facilitated meaningful informal networking sessions in every corner of the two-story art house. The BE Entrepreneurs Conference is widely considered the premiere business convention for minority proprietors and aspiring business owners in the world. It provides comprehensive training and tools to help catapult businesspeople to higher heights and provide a portal by which soon-to-be owners can make an easier transition into the ranks.
