2014 Fall Ocean State Business Expo

The 2014 Fall Ocean State Business Expo, slated for Oct. 2 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick, is approaching fast. This widely attended expo is designed to cultivate relationships throughout the business community statewide. From professional speakers to expert exhibitors, this event has offerings for anyone looking to strengthen their business-to-business connections. A few spaces are still available for exhibitors, and sign up is available while they last.

The Ocean State Business Expo kicks off with a keynote address starting at 10:00 a.m. on the day of the expo. Over 100 expert exhibitors display goods and services from 12 to 6 p.m., with four professional business training seminars running back to back all afternoon. A VIP Networking Party for all participants is scheduled Monday, Sept. 29, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Motivational speaker and author Brian Reid will launch the expo with his keynote address, “Release Your Inner Horsepower.” Reid is a business owner, entrepreneur, and life coach who not only walks his talk, but also cleans and clears the “Horseshit” from his life daily. Reid reveals how he has helped many business owners break through obstacles and surge their businesses forward. All participants can enjoy a mid morning snack served with the keynote presentation, starting at 10 a.m. before the expo.
