Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
The California Women’s Conference, which is an internationally acclaimed forum for the world’s most influential voices, hearts and minds, will be held at the Long Beach Convention Center on September 23-24, 2012. U.S. women constitute the number three market in the world, with their collective buying power exceeding the economy of Japan,
so this year’s theme is “The Women’s Economy Starts Here.”
The exhibit hall will feature “streets,” where women can shop from more than 250 vendors. While at the pinnacle of what has been envisioned as a Community Town Square, attendees will discover an oak tree, specially constructed to offer attendees a place to define their goals and dreams through a mobile app system.
For nearly 30 years, women in California have enjoyed a conference that provided a forum for building successful businesses, strengthening careers, and positively influencing the world around them. The California Women’s Conference will continue the tradition of empowering women and providing resources in every aspect of their lives, and embracing philanthropy by donating a portion of proceeds to participating charitable organizations.

About the California Women’s Conference
The spiritual predecessor of the California Women’s Conference (CWC), namely the California Governor & First Lady’s Conference on Women was an annual non-partisan event, and was created in 1985 by then-Governor George Deukmejian, to address the high failure rate among women-owned businesses by giving women entrepreneurs greater access to funding and other helpful resources. Selecting the city of Long Beach as the event’s host, city officials and businesses quickly became enthusiastic supporters. Then-First Lady Gloria Deukmejian assumed responsibility for the conference, which became known as the California Governor and First Lady’s Conference. Since then, the CWC has always attracted a highly respected and celebrated list of speakers. Today, the tradition of enthusiastically serving women-owned businesses continues under the stewardship of Michelle Patterson, CEO of EventComplete.
