The newest platform for BLACK OWNED BUSINESSES that doesn’t just generate exposure and revenue for the small or mainstream businesses that participate,
but focuses on enhancing the way they do business and gives them the
professional elements they need to function in a diverse society.
This great event will showcase some of the greatest start up and small
brands that are yet to hit the scene of the mainstream marketplace!
We wanted to insure this event was specific but yet diverse
at the same time which thus lead us to the name “The Melanin Market.”
MELANIN: any of a group of black or dark brown pigments present
in the air, skin. MARKET: an open place or a covered building where
buyers and sellers convene for the sale of goods. A meeting of
people for selling and buying
This is not the ordinary business fair or boring professional setting, this is a twist on the normal “just tables and chairs and products spread out for review” setting. This is a NEW INTERACTIVE platform that will also allow the vendors to do live presentations of their services they may offer that aren’t tangible physical items you buy in the store. This includes but not limited to: Artists, DJs, Shoe Repair, Spoken word, Party promoters, Life Coaches, Public Speakers and much more.
A DJ may come to vend to sell CDs and digital downloads and etc, but can also pay
to showcase during one of our main attraction hours to have all the attention on them
at that time to showcase the quality of service they provide. This way people can
see their style and flow LIVE and in color on the spot.
