2016 Women's Business Conference

If you're thinking of starting, improving or expanding a business, this conference is for you!

For the 13th year, the Women's Business Conference connects attendees with the resources they need to be successful. At this full-day conference, attendees learn from established members of the business community in Western Wisconsin, talk to business assistance providers, and network with over 500 emerging entrepreneurs.

More than 100 businesses will be on hand to display their services and products in the exhibitor hall. Twenty educational sessions and roundtables cover a wide range of topics, and one-on-one counseling is available to discuss specific business questions.

This is the only conference of its kind in Wisconsin. Join hundreds of women business owners, aspiring business owners and entrepreneurs for a one-of-a-kind day filled with education, advice, and networking.

With over 500 participants from across the Midwest at the last year's conference, we anticipate exceeding those numbers by continuing to specifically target female entrepreneurs who are starting, expanding and/or working to improve their businesses. Our generous sponsors allow us to keep registration fees low for the attendees and also provide scholarships for low-income individuals.
