Recommendation: High. While the website is busy-looking with clumsy language and navigation, the expo itself could provide an opportunity for women to learn, interact, and do business in an encouraging environment. With the growing numbers of women entrepreneurs who may be looking for education and contacts, this expo looks just in time. It’s a start! Plus the conference has an organizer profile worth trusting. The only concern: too much seems to be planned for a first women’s expo. It could get hectic if not confusing. Pick and choose your involvement carefully. If you’re an exhibitor, then with a fore-plan, this could be a good opportunity to promote your new idea!
