The 2016 annual My business Expo is back in Johannesburg on 10 March at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand. Now in its eighth successful year, My business Expo is Africa’s biggest and most successful business exhibition for anyone looking to start or expand a business.
Hosted by the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) the expo brings together thousands of delegates from South Africa and beyond for a one-day, all under one roof entrepreneurial extravaganza. The highly anticipated business start-up and growth forum will this year incorporate business Start-Up Expo, Access to Finance Indaba, The Franchise Show, Trading Across Borders and Build a business LIVE.
This year’s programme is already set to be bigger and better with an inspiring line-up filled with cutting edge solutions, new ideas and not-to-be-missed opportunities together with over 200 exhibitors and sponsors, and top of the line seminars.
“One of the largest challenges facing small businesses is the inability to further develop a customer base in order to boost top line growth,” notes Mike Anderson, NSBC founder and CEO. “My business Expo draws together expert information, guidance and advice on everything from how to access finance, control cash flow, register a trademark to the legal aspects involved in starting a business and how best to approach sales.”
In addition to inspiring delegates on the broader subject of entrepreneurship, the 2016 expo will also include the world famous Build a business LIVE. As the only paid-for event at My business Expo at R195, the exclusive event offers the opportunity to meet and listen to four global entrepreneurial and inspirational speakers guaranteed to get aspiring business owners moving in a positive and accelerated direction.
“The future of the South African economy and the future of job creation are inextricably dependent on small business,” says Anderson. “This is why small Business matters and why events like My business Expo are so important for those serious about starting or growing their own business. The expo presents an ideal opportunity for delegates to network, discuss current trends, share knowledge and so much more.”
Tickets for My business Expo are now available. Pre-registration is free provided delegates pre-register at www.mybizexpo.co.za
