BWe NEXT (Black Women’s Expo) Expands Market to include shows in Detroit and Atlanta in 2022

Founder and Executive Producer Merry Green Announces Updates via Facebook Live

(Chicago) — Look out Detroit and Atlanta! The Chicago-born BWe NEXT (Black Women’s Expo) is headed your way as announced by Founder and Executive Producer Merry Green today via Facebook Live. Green virtually discussed the addition of the Motor City June 18-19, 2022 and “Hotlanta” December 17-18, 2022. The Chicago show will return to McCormick Place August 12-14, 2022.

After encountering an unforeseen show cancellation in 2020 due to the global pandemic, Green wasn’t quite sure what to expect with the return of BWe NEXT the following year.

Dear BWe family,

From the moment I walked into the Phenomenal Woman Awards reception on Thursday evening, I had a feeling that the 27th Annual Black Women’s Expo in Chicago would be special, and I was right! There aren’t enough words to express my gratitude for the support and encouragement shown by so many throughout this HUGE undertaking that we affectionately call “BWe NEXT!”

Thank you to our sponsors, exhibitors, performers, panelists, my phenomenal team and every single attendee for breathing life into our celebration of the Black woman! Because of you, her legacy indeed continues!

I stole a few moments here and there to check out the vendors, pop in on panel discussions and catch some entertainment on the main stage. All I could say was, “WOW! WE DID THAT!”

There’s no doubt that my sister is smiling down on our earnest effort that manifested into excellent execution. Ruby, we did it!

Again, please accept my heartfelt thanks, and I hope to see you in Atlanta in December!

Submitted with love,

Creator and Executive Producer
