Home-Based Business Conference Postponed to Later Date Due to COVID-19

The Greater Peninsula Economic Development partners are postponing the Home-Based Business Conference due to COVID-19. The conference planning team decided it was in the best interest of attendees, speakers and exhibitors to postpone the event at this time. The conference was supposed to be held on Friday, March 20 at the Peninsula Workforce Development Center at 600 Butler Farm Road in Hampton, VA. A new date and any changes to the speakers will be announced at a later date.


All previously purchased tickets will be valid for the new date. If you are unable to attend on the new date, you may request a refund by emailing info@hbbconference.com or calling 757-877-5920.


The Home-Based Business Conference is presented by York County, Williamsburg, James City County, Poquoson, Gloucester, Newport News and Hampton.


For more information about the conference, please visit the website or Facebook event page.


The Home-Based Business Conference and its related Lunch & Learn Series began as programs of the York County Economic Development Office, in partnership with the York County Chamber of Commerce. County representatives learned that two-thirds of York County’s businesses are home-based, a trend that is growing both locally and nationally. In 2018, all six neighboring localities joined together to co-host the conference and lunch & learn series. This strategic partnership allows these nationally award-winning home-based initiatives to reach and assist more local business owners.
