After a two-year hiatus, the Sacramento Metro Chamber is bringing back its Small Business Metro-Expo, touted as a showcase for resource finding and network building.
A trade show, with businesses displaying products and offering information, is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 26 at McClellan Conference Center, with a networking reception immediately following.
Organizers expect nearly 2,000 attendees, with some 150 businesses showcased on-site.
Admission and parking are free for participants, who will have an opportunity to connect with business people across the six-county region. Hourly workshops will cover topics that include health care reform, the Next Economy, social media, international trade, financial funding, human resource training, certification classes and digital media options.
The day also will feature two guest speakers, one at breakfast and the second during lunch hour.
Metro-Expo offers the chance for hundreds of small businesses to connect with other small business owners, said Roger Niello, Metro Chamber president and CEO. Last featured in 2011, we believe that the timing is right to resurrect what has been a successful event for the business community. Our members indicated that the steady improvement of our regions economy signal significant opportunities for the small business community through this event.
Booth pricing is $300 for Metro Chamber members and $475 for non-members if registered by Sept. 6. For more information or to become a sponsor, go to www.metrochamber.org/events or contact Phil MacDougall at firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 319-4276.
