FOR EXPO EXHIBITORS:
WHAT EXACTLY IS EXHIBITING AT THE “BL SMALL BUSINESS EXPO”?
This a 13-year running opportunity to showcase one’s products or services to scores of attendees. It is in fact a combination of 3 separate events, with the first 2 being complimentary to the exhibitors.
The first one is the orientation/training for exhibitors. Here exhibitors are informed of the event layout, setup and other important details. They are invited to work out exactly what they want or plan to get out of the Expo. This then leads to the appropriate setup of the booth as well as the pitch that will help them achieve their goal(s). They will also be provided with a checklist of actions to take before, during and after the Expo.
The second one is the reception/mixer with exhibitors and sponsors where they introduce themselves and get acquainted so they can refer business to one another at the main Expo.
The Expo, itself. Generally exhibitors are presented with a complimentary opportunity to come in and set up the night before.
The Orientation, the checklist of actions to take, the Exhibitors' Reception and the opportunity to set up one's booth the night before are elements known to help multiply one's R.O.I. several times over!

WHAT VALUE DO YOU GET FOR EXHIBITING?
1. LEADS:
Exhibiting IS a major Lead Generation Potential for you!

2. WORD of MOUTH/NETWORKING:
Word of mouth was, is, and most probably will remain the most powerful advertisement known to man. When it comes to connecting or sharing one's product, nothing can compete with face-to-face interaction.

3. SALES:
Exhibiting at a trade show gives you an unprecedented level of access to important prospects, all without the resentment and apprehension that characterise traditional direct sales. Typical objections disappear as customers are in a buying mood.

4. TESTING, PILOTING or LAUNCHING a product/service:
The crowd is yours to work with.

5. THE FIELD IS LEVEL for ALL:
From locally owned small businesses to multinational corporations, everyone has access to the same attendees at the show.

Additional benefits are:
- Only 3 companies per industry are allowed to exhibit
- A 6 ft X 3 ft table
- 2 reps allowed at the expo (with no additional cost)
- Complimentary Power line
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Complimentary ticket to a 2- hour Orientation/Workshop 5-6 weeks before the expo
- Complimentary ticket to the Exhibitors & Sponsors Reception a week before the Expo

As a professional services consultant to small business owners, I've attended more than my share of networking events, but this one stood out by far.

FOR the NETWORKING CONSULTING & CLASSES:
AN OVERVIEW
This is the part of the organization that could be titled “The Resource Center”. This component of the organization is focused on providing practical Networking Know-how along with opportunities to put it in practice so that our guests can own the information they learn and apply it in real-life situations. This offering trains interested parties on tools, tips and techniques that will improve your ability to network successfully.

HOW VALUABLE IS IT?
No one said it better than Allan Bloom when he wrote "Education is the movement from darkness to light". We have found the definition of “Networking” in the dictionary was incorrect. Therefore it was no longer a surprise to find that ALL existing materials on Networking vary between a “collection of successful actions” and “opinions”. While a successful action might do for Person A, it may just not work for Person B at all. As for “opinions”, they are just that: “opinions”.

WHAT SET THIS APART?
A truly great amount of effort was made to help deal with the above situation. The Cardinal Rules of Networking were researched and found. A correct and usable definition for networking was developed, along with its basic laws and principles. Lastly, all this data was collected into a book that anyone seeking to learn more about networking can use.

HOW DO I ACCESS THIS INFORMATION?
The knowledge is now there are ready. One can reach for it through the following channels:
Articles, blogs and other writings found primarily on LinkedIn (under Basile Lemba)
Our soon-to-be-released N etworking book
The Networking Classes we offer which schedule can be found on this website
Our Annual Business Development Conference which is “heavy” on Networking.
The onsite Networking Classes and Consulting we offer and
A Retreat where people truly serious about networking travel to an exotic/nice location and spend a week or less to fully master Networking.

“Basile's Networking Breakfast and Class are invaluable! I made great connections with individuals that helped both my personal and business life. His wisdom about what networking really means raises the bar for all of us. Learning to help others be successful is a place every business person should start from. This is the key to success. I highly recommend Basile's events for those who want not only to be successful in business, but in life.”
-A.S. Businesses Owner
