Back with a B.O.O.M.!
An EPIC 20th Anniversary Summer Celebration Is On the Way

In 2003, the Black Expo burst upon the scene in Houston, filling the void that had existed for years for a Black cultural marketing tradeshow. The Black community needed an experience and access to Black cultural products and services, and the entrepreneurs and corporate sponsors who offered them needed a place to connect with consumers.
That year, the demand met the opportunity, and against a backdrop of lively entertainment, educational demos and presentations, and exhibits of every type, the success of Texas Black Expo was born.

Nearly 20 years later, thousands of exhibitors and corporate sponsors, and hundreds of thousands of attendees have participated in our annual Summer Celebration events, cementing TBE’s status as the largest minority business expo and cultural marketing festival of its kind in the southern U.S.

Next year, 2023, marks the 20th anniversary of the Texas Black Expo with the theme B.O.O.M.: Building Our Own Marketplace. Not only are we returning after two consecutive years of being away due to the Covid pandemic, but we will be coming back in a big way to celebrate our Platinum Anniversary with a four-day expo experience that can only be described as EPIC!

We plan to celebrate this historical milestone in grand fashion by taking all of our popular events and features to the next level. Our goal for the 2023 Summer Celebration: Go ALL-OUT and EXTRA on EVERYTHING!

Our goal for the 2023 Summer Celebration:

The live entertainment that you’ve enjoyed from the concert stage promises to be next level, ensuring that our guests have an unforgettable experience at our Old School Hip Hop and R&B Concert.

Our featured lineup of top celebrity guests and entertainers for the celebration will be making appearances at the various events, mingling with Expo attendees and enjoying the fun throughout the celebration.

Mark your calendars now for June 23-25, 2023 so that you don’t miss a single moment!
