Women TIES is proud to sponsor this event created by 4 of our Rochester members.

The mission of the Women of Focus Tradeshow is to support our local community (financially and philanthropically) by bringing together women business owners and entrepreneurs to showcase their unique products and services, and to support and celebrate each other in an elegant and sophisticated environment.

In support of the mission, the Women of Focus committee has chosen to provide financial assistance to local organizations that also focus on encouraging and promoting the success of women and girls.

Financial support from the first annual Women of Focus Trade Show event in 2014 benefited The Womens Foundation of Genesee Valley. The Womens Foundation of Genesee Valley is an organization focused on pro­moting eco­nomic self-sufficiency for women and girls through grant mak­ing and education. The Women of Focus committee is proud to support The Womens Foundation again in 2015.

We also encourage guests of the event to bring gently used gowns for donation to the Fairy Godmothers of Greater Rochester, a not-for-profit community service organization, helping underprivileged girls attend their High School proms in style.

About the Presenter

At a Women TIES luncheon early in the summer of 2013, Jill Bates of Crystal Clear Consulting met Angela LaVecchia of AngelinaVagabonda. They discovered they were both in the early stages of making significant changes in their businesses. They met for coffee and a brainstorming session, and came up with a variety of ideas on how to market their new businesses. In the fall of 2013, after a Women TIES luncheon, they decided to promote their businesses by showcasing themselves in a tradeshow setting. A tradeshow would allow them to help other women business owners showcase their products and services, and the event could also be philanthropic. The tradeshow would be held in an elegant venue, and unique women-owned businesses would be invited to attend.

With only two months to put the show together, Jill and Angela asked Susan Jefferson of TechCreative Web Design & Consulting to contribute her technical skills, and Brittany Brandt of What Box? Events to help with planning the event. The four women moved quickly to make the first annual event happen in March 2014 during "Celebrate Women's Month". Thank you to Tracy Higginbotham, founder of Women TIES, for her dedication to women entrepreneurs. She is what brought these four women together to create Women of Focus, a Tradeshow of Elegance.
