Miami-Dade Economic Advocacy Trust (MDEAT) held free North Central Dade Business Expo

Event brought together area vendors and residents to network and learn about various area services and products


(Miami, May 21, 2015) – They came by the dozens – vendors wanting to showcase a myriad of their services available to the North Central Dade community: clothing lines; jewelry; insurance agents; home and business protection; hurricane shutters; tax preparation; food vendors; radio and newspaper representatives; water purification systems; and an arcade game truck, among others. Participants were excited to find out about these great products and eagerly went from table to table sampling food, purchasing jewelry and clothing, learning about tax preparation, and more. Adults and kids received many giveaways, and vendors held numerous raffles – including gas and gift cards; tool kits; t-shirts – to the delight of participants. 

Continuing its tireless efforts to bring to life its mission of helping create economic parity between the underserved Black community and the community-at-large, a free North Central Dade Business Expo was sponsored May 14, 2015, by Miami-Dade Economic Advocacy Trust (MDEAT) at the Joe Celestin Community Center, the agency’s first in the North Central Dade area.  Vendors networked with one another, proudly displayed their wares, and provided residents with a great opportunity to learn more about their community and what is offered to them.  MDEAT hosts the MLK Business Expo every January in the South Dade area and plans to hold more of these important events throughout Miami-Dade County on a regular basis.

Attending dignitaries from the City of North Miami and Miami-Dade County reiterated the importance of these expos in order to bring communities together, empower business owners, and include area residents in all the affordable services available to them.
