“Our first expo last year was so successful, that we decided to double the length of the show to three hours to enable more community members to attend,” Summit/New Providence Leader Melanie Wilson said.  

This event will be particularly helpful for any woman considering launching her own business to attend, to meet and chat with those brave ones who have taken the plunge, and are now able to showcase their brand. 

“At B.I.G.,” Wilson said, “We strive to empower women at all stages of their professional pursuits, from stay at home mothers looking to re-engage in the workforce, to seasoned entrepreneurs looking to grow their business and career executives looking to make a change.  Come find out about the products and services of all these talented women, or just come get inspired by the women who have taken that next step and launched their own businesses.”
