We flew out of San Antonio to attend Small Business Expo for the second time in Chicago last week. This expo was free to the public and was held at the University of Illinois at Chicago Forum.
The weather in Chicago was awesome this time of year — a little cooler temperature combined with the winds that Chicago’s known for — was a relief coming from San Antonio. That being said, with weather like that, both attendee and exhibitor turnouts were expected to be high.
Some of the keynote presenters were:
Besides the Keynote speakers, there were also multiple workshops that attendees participated in, such as:
In addition to the various workshops and keynote speakers, which were great for learning new ideas and are often just what it takes to propel a business, the expo allowed Jungle Disk to interact with small- to medium-sized business owners to learn about their businesses and in turn give us the opportunity to explain how Jungle Disk can help them protect their most critical data, with our cybersecurity suite.
The business owners and entrepreneurs came from a range of backgrounds of expertise, such as legal, insurance, cleaning business, bookkeeping, IT, etc. It was nice to see the enthusiasm of the attendees and to let them explore how building a business is great because they all can envision the opportunities that exist today.
These Small Business Expos are hosted in 15 major U.S. cities, giving business owners the opportunity to build new business relationships, learn from industry experts and introduce them to products and services that help improve their business.
I’m looking forward to the next expo. To learn more about how our cybersecurity suite, can help your emerging small business, call us today at 1-888-601-0401.
