Sponsors and Exhibitors are being sought for the Santa Barbara Business Expo, organized by the Women’s Community Business Network, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 20 at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Hotel & Resort, 633 E. Cabrillo Blvd.
Organizers plan on making the expo an annual event, to develop continuity along with the launch of the on-line Business and Services Directory.
The expo will feature area business people who will share their experiences and offer tips and tactics. The event will include dozens of displays, booths, hand-outs, samples, and information on a variety of organizations with business-oriented products and services.
Organizers say the Santa Barbara Business Expo is an interactive networking convention designed specifically for the needs of the Santa Barbara business community.
Expo speakers will focus on: the importance of networking in business; why your business must grow to survive; how to use social media for your business; funding your business; printing and advertising in 2013; and how Search Engine Optimization, or SEO marketing, can affect business.
