Small Business Expo will kick off its nationwide tour by celebrating their 10th-Year Anniversary of providing business resources to local owners and professionals. For the last decade, Small Business Expo has provided invaluable resources for small-to-large business owners, start-ups and entrepreneurs to move their business forward. In 2017, the #1 Must Attend trade show welcomed nearly 75,000 small business owners through its door.
For 2018, the one-day event will host their trade show in 15 cities. Small Business Expo has included two new areas on the show floor including: THINK TANK® and Office Space Pavilion designed for registrants to utilize and brainstorm their Next Million Dollar Idea.
“I am excited to share our 2018 show line-up, especially our new impactful show areas to help our small business registrants on their journey to becoming a huge success”.
