Abator at Women in Business 2014

Philadelphia was the host city for the Women in Business Conference Join Forces. Succeed Together. Abator served on the Women's Business Enterprise Council-PA-DE-sNJ (WBEC Host Committee with twelve fabulous WBE business owners who appeared in an opening video. The annual conference was hosted by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (aka WBENC). The conference's goal ... to educate WBE owned business owners and promote opportunities for women and minority owned business.

This was Abator's first foray into conference sponsorship and we leared alot! In keeping with our commitment to foster relationships with other WBEs we have to mention the fantastic support we got from: graphic designers and promotional supplier CPI Creative, the banners and pop-ups from the 84 Sign Shop and booth furnishings from Hargrove.

Our raffle basket, won by Mercedes Ferguson of Dana Corporation, contained items made by WBE, family-owned and other small businesses from around western Pennsylvania. It included:

... and, for good measure we added a copy of the iconic World According to Mr. Rogers.

Joanne Peterson, Andrew and Marian Neilson appreciated the opportunity to make new business connections at this year's event and we lookk forward to next year in Austin, TX.

 Yep, our name on the sign, whee!
