Javits Convention Center, New York, NY CONTACT: Bob Miko, Pacific Dialogue Trade Show Bureau,[masked],[masked], [address removed] The New York XPO for Business, the largest small and mid-sized business conference in the Northeast, has announced a new two-day, paid-attendance format for its 7th annual show to meet the needs of local entrepreneurs and small business owners, offering more than 60 practical workshops on May 2nd and 3rd at the Javits Center. So many events are expensive, general and theoretical, but we are committed to giving attendees something significant for their investment; our event this year has been expanded to two days and businesses will walk away with the kind of learning and insights theyd get from a graduate business program, says Marc Sherer, CEO and Founder of Event Management, the XPOs producer. We call it the SMBA because our programs provide some of the same benefits of a graduate business education at a fraction of the cost and time. Innovations within this years XPO, designed to respond to trends and meet the needs of todays business owners include: · A boot camp for veterans who are starting businesses, including leaders and advisors from the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, SCORE, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the New York City College of Technology. According to a <http://www.entrep... article in <http://www.entrep..., veterans are at least 45% more likely to choose entrepreneurship than people with no active-duty military experience. · More than seven sessions dealing specifically with social media. According to a recent <http://blog.hubsp... study, small businesses spend a larger percent of their marketing budgets on social media than their big brand counterparts. At the XPO, Constant Contact will be introducing its new team of local experts, who will be available to give attendees hands-on training and tips for success. · Taking a page from reality TV makeover shows, the XPO has created an opportunity for one lucky winner to be transformed by a team of business experts. The winner of the 24 Hour Small Biz Makeover Contest wins a financial makeover, business plan, and free consultations by experts and the before and after will be featured on the recently-launched Small Biz World Television.
