6th Annual NY XPO for Business Explores New-Age Trends in Time-Tested Format
“Live connection is essential to business 
recovery” declares trade show organizer

New York, NY, November 9, 2011 – Computer aided 
communication devices are still not as effective 
as face-to-face networking for business owners.

“In person connections have historically been 
strong referral vehicles for small businesses,” 
exclaims Devin Cleary, Senior Vice President of 
Event Management, the event organizer. 
“Face-to-face networking is a more effective 
media channel when owners are seeking to build 
strong social relationships. In person meetings 
allow us to observe nonverbal behavior, evaluate 
competencies, develop trust and receive a quick 
response in “real time”. I do not believe that 
substituting an in-person meeting with a tweet or 
e-mail is going to institute a steadfast business relationship.”

The New York XPO for Business offers small 
business prime opportunities to make connections. 
For one day out of the office, professionals have 
the chance to network with 15,000 executives and 
attend over 40 engaging workshops all designed to 
build their business. Learn from the nation’s 
driving business leaders and energize your entrepreneurial spirit.

“No other convention in the Northeast offers the 
caliber of attendees or resources,” said Mr. 
Cleary. “It’s focused on connecting small 
business, entrepreneurs and startups with leading 
companies that offer essential products & 
knowledge to help them grow. Our mission is to 
help empower small businesses to rebuild America’s economy!”

Event Management has built this year’s convention around key business trends:
·         The synergies between real life 
connection and the “cloud.” In addition to this 
year’s networking, the conference will feature 
demonstrations by Vu TelePresence, Time Warner 
Cable Business Class, Rackspace Hosting, and 
Google. Companies will be focused on helping 
businesses incorporate technology into 
information sharing and communication. The goal 
is to educate business owners on the right 
combination of online mediated channels and face-to-face networking.
  ·         The age of the entrepreneur: During 
the Great Recession, more Americans have become 
entrepreneurs than at any time in the past 15 
years. In New York alone more than 25,000 new 
businesses were launched in 2010. With 
approximately 40 free seminars XPO will give 
attendees an opportunity to learn directly from 
world-renowned experts in their fields – covering 
everything from e-marketing to best practices to seeking capital.
  ·         The surge of women-owned businesses: 
There are approximately eight million women-owned 
businesses in the U.S., yet just 3% ever crosses 
the $1 million revenue line. This year marks the 
premier of a new targeted event. PowerwomenTV 
presents a “Dynamic Women in Business Luncheon” 
to benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation. The 
panel will be hosted by René Syler of­, Carol Brodie of, 
Dara Richardson-Heron MD, the CEO of Komen 
Greater NY, Nell Merlino, Founder & CEO of Count 
Me In for Women’s Economics, Dr. Erika MD, 
Founder & CEO of Age Management Institute, and 
Carmen Wong Ulrich, a bestselling author & personal finance expert.

Additionally, the New York XPO for Business is 
supported by national media, including WABC-TV, 
Bloomberg Television, CBS Radio, Crain’s New York 
Business, the New York Enterprise Report and the New York Post.

“This convention offers media outlets the 
opportunity to connect with their readership from 
across the nation. They are dedicated to support 
small business and we create a platform for them 
to connect in real time with their followers,” 
quips Cleary. “And, of course, what trade show 
would be complete without a networking cocktail 
hour. From 5-7:30pm, attendees and exhibitors 
will be able to take a load off their show-weary 
feet and mix, mingle, and exchange cards and  QR 
codes at a cocktail event sponsored by the New 
York City Business Networking Group.”
