The First Alabama Black Expo Arrives in Huntsville, Alabama

By Mikala McCurry

Quentin and Katrina Stinnett, owners of Everything Life Brings Consulting Firm, will host the first annual Alabama Black Expo in Huntsville, AL. The Alabama Black Expo will be a platform for marketing entrepreneurs as well as those in the fashion and beauty industries.

The Stinnetts were inspired to create the Alabama Black Expo after experiencing a period of unemployment. “We know what it is like to be unemployed, and we don’t want others to experience that feeling. We want to instill that entrepreneurship drive in others.”

The Alabama Black Expo will focus on new strategies for starting and growing businesses, trends in social media sharing, building a successful team, and exploring new markets. According to Quentin Stinnett, the main goal of the expo is to bring awareness to black entrepreneurship. He encourages entrepreneurship with the motto: “There is enough money for everyone to make money.”

The Alabama Black Expo will include vendor shopping, the MISS Alabama Black Expo Modeling Competition, spoken word artists, gospel artists, R&B artists, and many other talented entrepreneurs from various industries.

In the future, the Stinnetts plan to host the Alabama Black Expo in various major cities in Alabama. “We’re connecting everyone from the bottom to the top, and from the east to the west.”

This historic event will take place on August 12, 2017 from noon to 8pm at the Von Braun Civic Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The last day to become a vendor is July 15, 2017. However, tickets to attend the Alabama Black Expo can be purchased online or at the expo for $10.
