The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is gearing up for its 2024 conference! This year is to be the largest yet, with over 300 exhibits, 26 industry-specific lab sessions, and more than 200 corporate members meet and greets, the event promises to be a networking success. From March 19th to 22nd, Denver, Colorado, will welcome over 4,500 attendees, all converging to make history in the largest gathering of its kind.
Last year’s conference set a high bar, with a staggering 97.5% of attendees reporting meaningful connections. But this year, the goal is not just to meet that standard but to exceed it, under the theme of “AMPLIFY!”
Amplify: Elevating Women in Business
At DMG we amplify women in business every day with a majority of women staff in roles from account management to creative director to web development. We are committed to supporting women in the workplace by fostering an environment where they can continuously learn and expand their skill sets.

The theme of AMPLIFY is more than just a slogan; it’s a clear call to uplift the voices, influence, and impact of women entrepreneurs across North America. It’s a movement for women entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 advocates, and the extensive WBENC network to unite, share stories, and celebrate achievements. This sharing of expertise and accomplishments is not just about fostering growth—it’s about creating a tightly-knit community that thrives on mutual support and inspiration. Alaina Percival CEO of Women Who Code said “I realized that if I was willing to step up and be in the spotlight, I’d be able to make everyone else around me much more powerful as well.”
