Black Emergency Managers Association Joins Force with eZ-Xpo for a Global Collaborative Emergency Network

eZ-Xpo in partnership with Black Emergency Managers Association (BEMA) launches a global collaborative emergency network marketplace with virtual trade show, virtual job fair, and virtual learning for every community around the world.

eZ-Xpo is pleased to announce the world's  1st Global Collaborative Emergency Network Ecosystem for Emergency Managers around the world in partnership with Black Emergency Managers Association (BEMA) with virtual expo, virtual social learning, and virtual job fair around the world.

To kick-off the Global Collaborative Network Marketplace, a series of Virtual Forums and Expos from Emergency Managers and government agencies are scheduled to take place in early Fall. The event will accelerate and facilitate deeper community, nonprofit, and private organizations, and entrepreneurial business relationships and ongoing collaboration opportunities between the emergency management community and the world.

The key objectives of this Global Collaborative Network Ecosystem are to bring all stakeholders to connect, collaborate, and promote new ideas and solutions to address today's global emergency issues (i.e., earthquake, climate change, flooding, homeland security) in a live, on-demand virtual environment within communities, states, nationally, and internationally.

 "The key challenge of  the local emergency manager is to get connected and network with a vibrant emergency network  ecosystem that can offer the right mentors, advisors, partners, or potential team members around the world. " said Charles Sharp, Founder & CEO of BEMA 

"The Global Collaborative Network Marketplace is the perfect collaborative ecosystem combining the capabilities of  virtual expo, virtual learning, and virtual job fair, all-in-one through a single portal. I am excited to partner with eZ-Xpo to help connect all stakeholders worldwide for a better future in safety, education, and coming together to address our most pressing needs in our communities locally, nationally, and internationally.    

"Technology has now given us the ability to communicate and connect globally.  We were separated by distance and languages, and now those differences are no longer a hindrance to us moving forward, to come together from different communities throughout the world into one community.  Our whole community, whole nation, to one world."  

 "Through the partnership BEMA, we can offer instant response and instant rescue action plans from experts around the world.  We can connect and educate every stakeholder with trainings and projects  ranging from providing assistance in improving emergency preparedness and response programs, to joint collaborative activities to improve emergency management infrastructure worldwide, " said Matt Fok, Founder and CEO of eZ-Xpo.

"Experts and mentors can now offer feedback and direct engagement with any global stakeholder, in virtually every continent, without leaving the comfort of their homes or offices. No longer is it necessary to have to jump on a plane for weeks or even months to meet or consult with organizations around the world."

The BEMA Global Collaborative Network Ecosystem will include the following game-changing features and virtual trade shows: 

  • Virtual Trade Show  - Global experts, mentors, and advisors can connect, collaborate, and promote each other's services or offerings live and on-demand in a virtual lobby. Every stakeholder can upload their products/services and solutions to their virtual pitch deck to their virtual booth for review.                                                                                                                                                    
  • Virtual Job Expo - Participants or job-seekers will be able to showcase their latest and greatest accomplishments in an easy to use virtual booth. This will also enable all employers and any agencies to showcase exciting new job opportunities or short-term projects and provide a one-stop place for screening, interviewing, selection and on-boarding.
