Annual Asian Business EXPO

In the last decade, the number of Asian-owned businesses in Texas has doubled, providing vast (albeit relatively untapped) economic opportunities for the region.  With close to $500 billion dollars in purchasing power, Asian Americans are still the most affluent consumer group in the United States. Tapping into the Asian entrepreneurial spirit is therefore essential to making the North Texas region another major economic hub in Texas and the United States.  The EXPO brings together individual consumers, Asian American suppliers, non-profit organizations, government agencies and major corporations under one roof for business-to-business matching opportunities.

In the event’s short history, we have welcomed speakers and VIP guests including high-ranking government officials, CEOs of major Fortune corporations, reporters from major broadcast networks, and many more. Special programs have included the Woman’s Business Symposium, the One-on-One Franchise Zone, and the US-China Business Connection which brought our event to the global scale!  Please come join us at the upcoming Asian Business EXPO.

Certification

USPAACC’s certification is recognized by Fortune corporations, and is as thorough and complex as other well-known minority certification processes conducted by other national organizations, including NMSDC and WBENC.

Our certification increases business opportunities with Fortune companies and Government agencies. Since 1989, USPAACC’s Asian American Business Certification program has provided corporate and government supplier diversity and small business programs with qualified and quality suppliers they seek.

Certified members have the advantage of being selected for consideration for minority contract opportunities when they become available. Over the course of 30-years, USPAACC has leveraged its strong ties and relationships with prime contractors and Federal agencies to successfully match our supplier members with Fortune corporations and Government agencies.
