Marketplace 2020

Dear Potential Conference Vendors,

We are now preparing for October 15, 2020, the date of the 30th Annual Women’s Fall Conference to be held at the Lake Charles Civic Center. We would like to personally invite you to be a part of this milestone event, honoring the women of Southwest Louisiana. Last year’s conference hosted over 2000 participants and the 2020 conference is anticipated to draw an even larger participation.

Marketplace 2020 is a wonderful opportunity for you to showcase the goods and/or services that you offer and to help women improve, empower and enlighten their lives! Early-bird registration opens January 25, 2020. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee you will have the same spot as last year. The MarketPlace Committee works very hard to place your booth in the best possible spot for your type of business and the earlier you register the quicker we can block your spot! (For companies that allow only one vendor per event, the first one to register will have priority.)

For more MarketPlace information, you may email at

We look forward to your participation in this unique and exciting annual event! Thank you again for your continued support of the Women’s Fall Conference.
