You may ask yourself, why should I attend a networking mixer or business expo event? It’s a fair question, and a question to which we have answers in the form of a handy bullet list of reasons and helpful helps:
· Build and create new business relationships.
· Gain knowledge and exposure to new trends, products and resources.
· Keep an edge over your competitors with knowledge of the latest technology and trends in your industry with an introduction to new products, equipment and services.
· If your competitor is attending a show, you should be there too! You don’t want to miss out on sales opportunities and potential relationship building.
· Learn about what’s hot, what’s fading, and what your company needs to have or do right now.
· Meet a who’s who of local business professionals.
· Stimulate new ideas and creative ways to support your business.
· Meet other business people who you can lean on, learn from, and possibly gain business from that you would not have had the chance to meet had you not attended.
