Conferences are great way to meet new people, develop new business and market yourself. There are two upcoming conferences this fall that you want to check out.
The New York Times and American Express’ Open is hosting a Small Business Summit on October 10 at the Sheraton New York. Keynote Speakers are Danny Meyer of the Union Square Hospitality Group and Tom Scott of Nantucket Nectars and Plum TV. Registration is open and the fee is $99.
The New York XPo for Business is more of a small business trade show. There will also breakout on technology, small business financing and healthcare. The even is Wednesday November 28. Registration is open and it is free to attend, but it costs to be a vendor. I attended this last year, and it was informative, but there is more of an emphasis on selling services.
