2013 Ocean State Small Business Expo Releases Seminar Schedule


The Ocean State Small Business Expo, Rhode Island’s premier event for connecting small businesses to each other and to larger companies, is scheduled for Wednesday, October 2, 2013.  The expo is being held at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick, RI and runs from 11:00am – 7:00pm.

The expo’s mission is to support the growth and development of Rhode Island’s small business community.  The excitement is building as we welcome more sponsors and exhibitors than ever before to the expo.  The expo features over 100 exhibitors, valuable informational seminars throughout the day, and a networking cocktail reception from 5:00 – 7:00pm.  Take a look at the Seminar Schedule below so you can mark your calendar for the ones you are planning to attend.

11:00am – Beyond Marketing 101 Basics: Strategies For Business Owners to Make Things Happen

Cocktail Reception

The expo wraps up with a large networking cocktail reception in the Garden Pavilion from 5:00 – 7:00pm.  This will quite possibly be the largest networking event in the state for October.  It is the perfect way to unwind at the end of a busy day if you are an exhibitor and a great way to meet the exhibitors if you were unable to come to the expo during the day.  There will be fun, food and a cash bar.  The reception is hosted by Out-of-the-Box Networking, Uncle Jay’s Networking, The Rhode Island Small Business Journal and BNI.
