The 2024 Georgia Black Expo

Theme: Unleashing Potential, Creating Opportunities

The 2024 Georgia Black Expo, themed “Unleashing Potential, Creating Opportunities,” is gearing up to open its doors in a celebration of culture, entrepreneurship, and community development like never before. This event is not just a gathering; it’s a movement toward creating a platform where individuals can come together to explore the endless possibilities within and around them. Join us to celebrate empowerment, inspiration, and positive change. This is our inaugural signature annual event, set to take place on the weekend of September 6th, 2024, at the Gas South Convention Center. As the catalyst for positive change, GBE is committed to making a lasting impact on the community through our seven pillars. These pillars are a cornerstone in our mission to transform Georgia into a healthier, wealthier, more educated, entertained, engaged, innovative, politically astute, and creative force.
