I attended the New York Business Expo at the Jacob Javits Center yesterday. The event boasts 600 vendors and 15,000 attendees. My experience tells me those figures are close to the truth.
There were also over twenty (20) seminars offered I attend two (2). The first was on perfecting your elevator pitch and the other on proposal writing.
The vendors ranged from no profit minority business development organizations to major banks and insurance providers. I found the local Chamber of Commerce offices very interesting and found they offer many marketing opportunities.
I also spoke with several Marketing firms that produce Exhibition Displays. Those nice graphical walls that you see all the pretty people standing in front of during photo ops. I look forward to erecting our own display at our next event.
For contact information on any of the above companies please feel free to contact me.
