Nevada’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (NCET) is hosting its 14th annual Small Business Expo on Friday, Sept. 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Mt. Rose Ballroom at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.
The NCET Small Business Expo is Northern Nevada’s largest and oldest business-to-business expo. The annual expo provides business owners an opportunity to network with more than 1,000 businesspeople, meet over 100 exhibitors and learn from five different educational sessions. Admission for small business owners is free with the presentation of a business card and no pre-registration is needed.
The Expo’s list of educational speakers aims to provide the latest information about legal issues, marketing channels and business planning matters. Speakers and sessions include Employment Law Matters, Branding and Marketing Your Business, How to Value Your Business, Digital Marketing, and Small Business Basics.
“You can use the trade show’s educational sessions to learn new information, be stimulated by new ideas, or walk away with an action plan for business growth,” NCET President & CEO Dave Archer said.
The Expo also offers opportunities for small business owners and entrepreneurs by creating informal one-on-one conversations and networking with fellow attendees. Additionally, more than 100 vendors are located throughout the Expo providing advice on business plans, financial strategies, marketing, social media messages, legal concerns for small businesses and more.
Gov. Steve Sisolak said the annual expo plays a continuing role in strengthening Nevada’s economy. “The remarkable creativity and energy of Nevada’s entrepreneurs have established the state among the nation’s leaders,” the governor said. “NCET’s Small Business Expo provides the tools that entrepreneurs need to build the thriving companies that will lead Nevada into its promising future.”
