For 2016, Business Expo workshops have been completely revamped. Now with more information in shorter rapid-fire sessions, jump in and out of the workshops that interest you while spending the balance of your time at the Expo itself. These 7 “business speed-dating” sessions cover everything from small business marketing, finance, and political engagement, to disaster preparedness, public/private development, and regional economic drivers. Be sure to catch a few or all of these 30-minute sessions, and get up-to-date on all the factors that affect the growth of your business and Central Oregon.
Giveaways 4:45pm – 5:45pm
Finally, close out the day with our Expo MC as they circulate through the Expo exhibitors, reintroduce the highlights of the day, and reveal the raffle prize winners of each booth. This “Business After Hours” portion also includes appetizers and a no-host bar. It’s the best opportunity to add giveaways to the stack of new business connections and resources already at the Expo.
