Group Discussions

Running a small business can be one of the most rewarding ways to earn a living, however it can also be a lonely existence. Sometimes you just want someone to talk to, even if it’s just to see whether there’s a better way you could be doing things.

The New York Business Expo offers small group counselling, where you can sit down with other small businesses and discuss best practice. Industry experts will also be on hand to give advice as to how your business can be more efficient and ultimately more profitable.


You may have been running your own successful business for years but that doesn’t mean to say you know everything there is to know about your industry and the wider business world. There’s still always room to grow!

The conference sessions that are on offer at the Expo give you insights into things that will help maintain and grow your business. The subjects covered are in vital areas such as financing, sales, marketing and social media.


If you wish to attend the Expo simply to visit the show floor and see the exhibitors then entrance is completely free. However, you will be missing out on the wealth of education on offer. If you want a pass that will cover entrance to all keynote speakers and networking events then this will cost just $20. There’s also VIP passes on offer which get you into the conference quicker than standard passes , these are just $30.


You don’t just have to be a visitor. If you’ve got a product or service to promote or feel that you can educate people then why not sign up to be an exhibitor? After all without exhibitors there would be no show!

There are many advantages to exhibiting at the show. There are thousands of buyers attending for a start. It is estimated that at least 78% of the people attending have purchasing power within their companies. That’s 78 people out of every 100 walking past your stand who have the ability to buy your product right then and there!

If you’ve got a product or service the world is yet to see, then announcing its arrival at the biggest Expo in the US North East is a great start. What better way to generate your initial customer base?
