Black Enterprise continues their partnership with FORA.tv for two summits in March and May 2017. Black Enterprise is the premier business, investing, and wealth-building resource for African Americans. Since 1970, Black Enterprise has provided essential business information and advice to professionals, corporate executives, entrepreneurs, and decision makers.
Black Enterprise hosted the Women of Power Summit in Phoenix AZ, where FORA.tv was chosen to partner with them for this multi-day summit. Women of Power Summit is the premier event for women of color to gather for three days of networking, uplifting, supporting, sharing, developing and bonding. There were a number of informational talks given by powerful executives, decision-makers, influencers, and leaders that were live streamed using FORA.tv’s expert production team and Brightcove streaming technology.
This year marks the 22nd anniversary of the Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Summit, which will take place May 17–20, 2017 at the Marriott Marquis Houston. The summit is one of the nation’s largest gatherings of entrepreneurs attended by more than 1,000 business leaders. This year’s summit highlights include the celebration and awards ceremony honoring the 45th anniversary of the BE 100s—the annual ranking of the nation’s largest black businesses with combined revenues over $40 billion. Each year, small business owners and entrepreneurs from all over the country gather to take in advice from strategic, motivational, and leadership sessions designed to benefit emerging and established minority businesses.
The organization wanted to make the event available to a wide audience by live streaming the discussions. Black Enterprise also implemented FORA.tv’s Boost campaign to promote engagement around the event on Facebook and Twitter while providing added value to their sponsors. FORA.tv’s marketing team followed along with the live conferences to cut and promote the most exciting and informative highlights from the conference via FORA.tv’s Boost social media campaign. FORA.tv Blast was also used to multi-channel live stream the conference to their website and social media channels at the same time.
