For more than a decade, Business Mercado has been the premiere event for the Hispanic business community in Abilene. Celebrating our culture, Mercado became known for its fun atmosphere while also promoting minority businesses and the minority consumer.
As is the case with nearly everything in 2020, we are having to adjust. The Hispanic Business Executive Committee and the Business Mercado Planning Team have made the difficult decision to cancel Business Mercado 2020.
The safety and wellbeing of our members comes first and we believe this decision does just that. However, business must go on, so rest assured that the Abilene Chamber and the Hispanic Business Council are constantly advocating for our members. We are working on solutions right now to keep our businesses top of mind.
In October of 2021, I hope you will be ready to ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom!’ Yes, we are carrying over our theme of ‘Your Business is Bidi Bidi Bom Bom!’
We look forward to continuing this rich tradition with you!
