Natural Hair Care Expo!!

Hi there!

I am excited to announce that I am coordinating the Denver's 1st Natural Hair Care Expo. The event will occur on Sunday, June 8th from 11am - 6pm, tentatively at Parkside Mansion! If you are receiving this correspondence, then I have either mentioned this event to you already and promised to forward you more information or I've received your contact information from someone who mentioned you as a reference, OR I have yet to discuss the event with you and would like to have you involved in some shape, form or fashion.

Attached are a couple of planning documents that support the Expo. Within those documents is a brief overview of the event with planned team/committee descriptions, potential sponsors, and a few financials to consider. Please review at your convenience, and if you are interested in being part of this event, simply reply to this e-mail and we'll go from there!

A few exciting updates: We've received our first Title Sponsor offer from a major contributor! Black Shopping Channel (http://www.blackshoppingchannel.tv/) has offered to become a title sponsor with a host of great offerings in exchange for cross promotion at our event! Many small businesses have expressed their interest in supporting and the buzz is getting louder - flyer images are already going around the internet! I hope that you can join me in the "behind the scenes" coordination for this event. We plan to have an official meeting of all parties involved by mid-February - I will keep you posted on those details as well. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding any of the info in this e-mail and I'll get back to you shortly!

-- Best Regards,

Phaedra High

    I'll be there at 11 ish as well. Is there a cost? I've invited 2 other folks to join us and they asked if there is a fee to get in, I said no but I wanted to confirm. Please let me know. Excited to see you all tomorrow :)

    Ladies, I would like to sponsor a meet up group for the Colorado Urban Naturals to promote your mission and build participation and continued excitement for the next Expo. Please let me know if you would like to take me up on this offer. I will need help in keeping the meetup fresh and exciting so if others would be willing to be co - chairs that would be appreciated. Hugs, Judy C. [masked] [masked]

    Expo was fun and informative. Recommend sending out a Survey Monkey to ask attendees and vendors about their experiences, suggestions for improvement and assistance in making a great Expo next time. A great event works best with a year or more of planning and implementation. Good luck with the next event. I'm willing to help if you start planning soon.

    Kelly, great suggestion about wearing a green bracelet. I think I will do that also since I don't like the green ribbon that I bought. LOL. Hope I meet some of you there.

      I'm be performing at 1230 on the main stage! Can't wait to meet all who attend also.

    Let's wear a green ribbon around our right wrist with our name legibly written on it so we know we're with the Denver Sista Circle Meetup. That way we can introduce ourselves to each other through out the day if we all don't meet at 11am. What do you all think of that idea? :-) The Natural Coils Meetup will be wearing purple ribbons with our name written on them.

      Green bracelet or jewelry... would that work?

      @ ISeeinPoetry, I look forward to meeting you with a green bracelet on, too. ☺

    I believe that there is a fee per workshop. I'm not sure about the meetup time, but I will be there.

    Hi Ladies, any suggestions for how we can connect at the Expo on Sunday? I really would like to meet you.

      I plan to get from the very beginning at 11am. Not sure how long I will stay. Depends on how interesting, how organized and how fun it is. LOL.

      I think the host can make a little sign in a corner for the meet up group members to hang out. Whether before, during or after, we'll have a chance to connect in a designated spot.

    I will be there at 11 see you all there.

  • Kelly

    I will be there @ 11. I've never been to the studio, but I'm assuming there's a lobby area in which the 11 am arrivals could meet up. I will only be able to stay about an hour.

  • Khadijah A.

    I will be there at 11-1

    Sista Friends, please note that this event will be held at Cleo Parker Robinson's Dance Studio, not at Parkside Manor as shown on this page. Contact Phaedra High through this meetup or at the Colorado Urban Naturals website for more information. We must show the vendors and exhibitors that Denver can support such an event. Hope to see you there.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
