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 nations
driving business leaders and energize your entrepreneurial spirit.
No other convention in the Northeast offers the
caliber of attendees or resources, said Mr.
Cleary. Its 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 Americas economy!
Event Management has built this years convention around key business trends:
· The synergies between real life
connection and the cloud. In addition to this
years 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
Goodenoughmother.com, Carol Brodie of HSN.com,
Dara Richardson-Heron MD, the CEO of Komen
Greater NY, Nell Merlino, Founder & CEO of Count
Me In for Womens 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, Crains 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.
