BUSINESS MATCHMAKER
CONFERENCE AND EXPO 2020

Spotlight On Vendor Wards

From the Planning Committee:

We are closely watching the unfolding impact of the coronavirus COVID-19 crisis through the reports from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) our State and County government. Safety, health and well-being are our primary focus. Currently, we are aware that many organizations across the country are either cancelling or postponing their conferences and entities have placed stop travel bans on their employees for a specific period of time. For that reason, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Business Matchmaker Conference and Expo for 2020. We will however acknowledge the outstanding work done in 2019 by awarding an Advocate of the Year; Corporate Partner of the Year; Small Business of the Year; Minority/Woman Business of the Year and Disadvantaged Business of the Year.
Since 2006, the Palm Beach Partners comprised of the following agencies: Palm Beach County, PBC School District; South Florida Water Management District, City of West Palm Beach, City of Riviera Beach, The TED Center and Paragon Foundation; hosted the Annual Business Matchmaker Conference & Expo. Conducted each September and attracting more than 1,000 attendees including public officials, corporations, small and minority/woman businesses and aspiring micro businesses the event is recognized throughout the county as one of the most important training and networking activities available. We hope to celebrate our 15th Annual Business Matchmaker Conference & Expo in September 2021.
