    (MORENO VALLEY, Calif.) Consumers can learn more about an array of goods and services offered by a wide range of local businesses and at least one national corporation at the Southern California Black Business Expo on Saturday, Nov. 7.

    “All of the exhibitors will showcase the goods and services they have available here in the Inland Empire,” said Black Business Expo producer Jerry L. Green. “They will also provide information for people who want to join their franchise opportunities, multi-level marketing associations and other ways of creating new business.”

    The Expo takes place Saturday, Nov. 7 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Moreno Valley Holiday Inn Express, 24630 Sunnymead Blvd, between Indian Street and Perris Boulevard.

    Booths in the Black Business Expo include Ameriprise Financial Services, Prepaid Legal Services, Temptations Parties, Just Corps, Costco, Kimi Rochelle Public Relations, Ardyss and Print 4 Success, Inc.

    Print 4 Success, Inc will have Black Inventors calendars and playing cards for sale at the Expo, Green said, and Ardyss may sell its body shapers, however the rest of the companies taking part will mostly be presenting information about their companies.

    “Both Ardyss and Temptations Parties primarily sell through home parties,” Green noted. “Temptations Parties’ goods are on the risqué side, and can spice up your relationship.”

    Costco will have information about membership, which is required to visit its retail showrooms. Costco has these showrooms in Moreno Valley and other Inland Empire locations, and throughout the world.

    The other companies taking part offer various services, such as financial, legal, business consultations and public relations. They will provide information about these at the Expo.

    As of a few days before the Expo, booths were still available. Whatever goods or services a business sells, the Black Business Expo is an opportunity to build up a customer base.
    “I will hold these four times each year,” Green said. “By participating, businesses will have a new way to continuously market that isn’t available at a traditional business expo held only once a year.”
    Green encourages people who are looking for new job to attend, so they can learn if starting a business is for them.

    “In these tough economic times, many people need to either go back to school to get a skill set or start their own business,” he said. “ At the Black Business Expo they will learn about business opportunities and see if running their own business is something they would like to do.”

    Future Black Business Expos are already scheduled for March 20, 2010; June 26, 2010; Sept. 11, 2010: Dec. 11, 2010 and March 19, 2011.

    Admission is $10. To purchase tickets, or find out more about being a vendor, visit www.scblackbusinessexpo.com or call Green at (951) 313-1919.
