The biggest SME event of 08

We’re gearing up for the first Small Business Expo of 2008, which kicks off at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds on 16 April.

This expo is the calendar highlight of the year in New Zealand for businesses to peddle their wares. Organisers Sarah Trotman and Associates promote it as the “business to business marketplace” for New Zealand’s largest event focused solely on SMEs.

In 2007 the Auckland event drew a crowd of more than 7000. With 76% of those surveyed saying they had either conducted business with or were planning to conduct business with someone exhibiting, it has a very successful strike rate.
