Women's Expo features variety of local businesses, organizations

The third annual Women’s Expo, featuring Albuquerque businesswomen, will join together to display what their respective businesses have to offer as part of the Brigham Young-New Mexico women’s basketball game at The Pit on Feb. 3.

A variety of organizations and businesses will set up tables and displays on the concourse of The Pit and will offer information, samples, and brochures promoting their wares to all fans who wish to participate in the festivities. The Women’s Expo begins at 5:30 p.m. and runs throughout the game.

The Women’s Expo has been a big draw since its inception. Last year, more than 11,000 fans turned out. UNM Athletics Department officials are hoping to attract upwards of 15,000 fans for this year’s event.

“We want people to come out to the women’s basketball game, but we also want to show them what women in the community are doing since many of the fans are women.” said Marie Baker, marketing assistant in the Athletics Department. “The ultimate goal, in addition to showcasing the organizations and businesses participating, is to bring in 15,000 fans.”

More than 30 Albuquerque-area businesses and organizations plan to participate in the Women’s Expo including UNM Continuing Education, UNM Resource Center, She Sport, Westside Women’s Wellness, Women’s Community Association, Albuquerque Women’s Resource Center, Coast Guard, Acupuncture Garden, Girl Scouts, Planned Parenthood and more.
