Florida Black Expo

Thomas Media Group, the founding organization of the Florida Black Expo, and its new Florida market partner, The Pollock Group, LLC have joined forces to bring back a critical platform for showcasing and engaging the vibrant urban community of the First Coast. At its height, the Florida Black Expo in Jacksonville attracted over 20,000 attendees. The Expo offered attendees the opportunity to have 1-on-1 engagement, education, and entertainment with over 300 retail exhibitors, corporate entities, and governmental agencies in a fun, high-energy setting. After a two-year hiatus, Thomas Media Group and The Pollock Group have planned the return of the Florida Black Expo to Jacksonville to reignite this pivotal catalyst for growth in North Florida. Fun, food and entertainment that have always been a big part of the Expo will still make it the place to be on August 26, 2021, at the historic Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center and at exciting events planned throughout the week. Sign-up today and get the latest news and chances to win your tickets to this year’s events!
