About the National Black Economic Conference

Formerly the South Florida Black Economic Forum

The National Black Economic Conference (NBEC) is an annual initiative to connect, engage, and inform black business owners and professionals about opportunities, resources, and programs that will increase the number and scale of black owned businesses in the United States and globally. In addition, the conference aims to create dialogue and solutions for creating multi-generational wealth and building sustainable communities. The Mosaic Group in partnership with the Urban League of Broward County and several businesses and community partners host this annual annual event. This year, the event has grown to a three day conference that will feature a kickoff reception – “Experience Blk: Booze, Bites, Beats”, a day-long forum with panel discussions, a keynote luncheon, and breakout workshops, and an all-day Buy Black Expo to showcase the growing global Black Business community.  The NBEC’s goal is to empower community members to take the necessary steps to grow and develop their enterprise, create wealth for their families, support black businesses throughout the US, and foster growth and sustainability while reducing unemployment and bridging the wealth gap in the US and beyond.
