In honor of Black History Month, we’re highlighting 28 black owned vendors you should consider for your next event.
Each week, we’ll feature 7 black event businesses that have services and solutions you should know about. These vendors range from chefs and musicians to digital platforms and exhibitors…and everything in between!
We believe it’s important to diversify your event team and encourage organizers to hire black vendors for more contracts and gigs. Vendorspace works to foster these vendor relationships by promoting black-owned businesses in our platform that are ready to work!
