PCN Sponsors and Exhibits at WBENC 2014 National Conference

(Philadelphia, PA) PCN sponsored and participated in the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) 2014 National Conference and Business Fair, June 23-25, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center & Philadelphia Marriott. Approximately 350 exhibitors, including Fortune 500 companies and America’s leading WBEs attended, representing the healthcare, logistics, energy, retail, transportation, telecommunications, finance, and banking industries, as well as federal, state, and local government agencies.

Katrin Hillner, PCN’s President & CEO, was one of 12 members on this year’s host committee that helped organize the event. PCN’s theme for the conference was “Fashion and Technology” and we collaborated with two Student Designers from the Moore College of Art & Design. The students created three innovative fashion designs that dressed mannequins with technology devices as “heads.” Attendees were asked to vote for which “Look” they liked best. PCN separated the voters into two groups, the general public for the “Popular” vote and professional panel experts for the “Expert” votes. The popular vote was calculated from votes via Twitter or business card submissions in corresponding buckets. As for the expert vote, a panel of judges was asked to vote for their favorite look and provide feedback to the Student Designers. The panel included representatives from Macy’s Inc., Limited Brands, Target Corp., and Ann Inc. and Elissa Bloom from The Philadelphia Fashion Incubator. “Look 3” was voted the winner by both popular and expert voters.
