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.
