WhatS NEW For 2012?This years Expo Committee has put together an outstanding line-up that cant be missed! Lets get right to it
New Show DatesThe 2012 Business Expo is expanding from a one day event to a two day event. Scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, March 26 & 27 the two day event allows for set-up and networking with members / exhibitors at the Business After Hours on Monday. Tuesday morning kicks-off with Keynote Speaker, Mr. Wayne Kostroski (see details below). This is followed by the opening of the Expo floor, providing a professional backdrop to showcase your business.
New Show HoursShow hours on Tuesday, March 27 are expanded! Feedback from the survey conducted after the 2011 Expo told us the Expo needed to open earlier and stay open later to accommodate those who are working and cant get away. The Expo committee responded to this request by expanding the hours. The Expo show floor is open to the public. New Expo hours on March 27 are 11:00 am 6:30 pm. Booths must be manned during these hours.
Business After Hours ChangeWeve all heard that Change is Good. In this case, change is good and necessary. With the extended Expo hours on Tuesday, it was necessary to move the Business After Hours to Monday evening.
