Every spring, Women Entrepreneurs of Southern Oregon (WESO) hosts a combined trade fair and networking event to help you discover the extraordinary variety of entrepreneurs in the Rogue Valley. WESO offers this special event to share what its members and other local business owners have to offer. It’s also a great networking and shopping opportunity. And women, men and families are welcome!
This year, our event will be on Saturday, March 21, 2020, (12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.) and will be held at the Inn at the Commons, Grand Ballroom, 200 N. Riverside Dr, Medford. (attendee parking map)
Businesses represented range from gift items to office support to food items, jewelry, wellness products, and much more. Come explore the exhibits and find out more about this vibrant community group.
Prize drawings make this event truly fun and exciting.
$25 Cash Prize, too! - Play the "Visit the Vendors" scavenger hunt and you'll get a chance to win one of two $25 cash prizes.
If you're a businessperson, bring your business cards and network, network, network!
This event also benefits Community Works - Dunn House Shelter which provides a safe refuge and support services for women and children to help them escape from domestic or sexual abuse, stalking, trafficking and date violence. Click here to learn more. Dunn House representatives will be at our Expo collecting donations.
We're also selling tickets for great raffle prizes that will benefit Dunn House. You can purchase raffle tickets at the Expo or ahead of time online at our Attendee information page. Just click the "Register" button there. Winners will be drawn at the Expo but you do not need to attend to win. Last year we had several wonderful prize baskets with lots of good stuff. The value was hundreds of dollars.
You can be a part of this annual event! Both members AND non-members can be exhibitors. It's your chance to network, show your stuff, make new contacts, and make sales. And, it's a lot of fun!
