All across the country there are trade shows and expos for small business owners.  They are great venues to network, pick up some information and find other opportunities for your business.

 

At the Los Angeles Convention Center this weekend, Verizon will be at the West Coast Expo (August 12 - 14), an exposition and trade show for small, medium, and large businesses with goods, products, and services to market on the West Coast.  This three day event will feature different pavilions with a focus on  ‘Business’, ‘Technology’, ‘Green & Health’ and others to provide opportunities for  attendees to interact with experts and vendors, to learn about, evaluate, test, and/or purchase new products and services. 

 

At this expo attendees can find:

 

  • Business workshops and operational literacy support necessary to grow, thrive, and sustain in today’s global market;
  • Technology usage to evaluate learning and enabling participants to stay connected, informed, and share information;
  • Sustainability lessons for your business and other workshops, seminars, and lectures.

 

Verizon will sponsor two workshops on Friday, August 12 – come and find out “the Tools to Help Your Business Get Down to Business.”  The workshops will have information on the breadth of our product portfolio from business applications such as Verizon Website Services powered by Intuit, Verizon GoogleApps, our super-fast FiOS Internet product offerings, and our leadership in bringing the 4G LTE network to more and more cities – Verizon has the services, apps and devices for your business – positioning your business for success and growth.

 

If you are planning to come to this expo, stop by the Verizon at booth #929 and ask for your free gift – simply mention that you read this blog post (quantities are limited).  Only our loyal blog readers will get this gift.

 

Tell us which trade shows/expos you are planning to attend in the Fall.
