Thank you to all of our Amazing Sponsors!
The support has been pouring in from many female-owned and run businesses of all industries in our Northern Region, as well as Male-owned companies. We can't thank the community enough for their sponsorships to make this event possible in its inaugural year, and make it the most valuable for our attendees.
Networking Barn Vendors
The hour we break for lunch in between Speaker Sessions in the Pavillion, will be your chance to visit the Networking Barn and peruse the Vendors, shop for products, and connect with the powerhouse businesses that have set up a booth at the Networking Barn. The barn will be semi-heated with construction-grade electric heaters, however it is a BARN, so keep in mind, it's February, and you should dress accordingly.
