Metro Chamber announces business-to-business trade show

The Sacramento Metro Chamber announces that the 2010 Metro Expo trade show will be held Tuesday, May 25, at the Sacramento Convention Center. It will offer hundreds of opportunities for small businesses from around the region to meet other small business owners.


In a post-event survey, 49 responding businesses who exhibited in the 2009 Metro Expo reported inking deals worth more than $1 million. That’s more than $20,000 for each surveyed business. Last year’s trade show attracted more than 1,500 participants.


Case in point: Sue Peppers of Peppers TV, a Mather-based video production company. “From that event, we signed a $22,000 contract,” Peppers wrote in a thank-you letter.


Metro Expo offers another opportunity to improve your business’s revenues: Sell to a state agency. Despite budget troubles, the state still needs products and services. Their agencies attend Metro Expo to make connections with small firms. In fact, Metro Expo is part of Gov. Schwarzenegger’s initiative for state’s agencies to do business with small businesses and is part of the Collaboration Conference series. At Metro Expo, certifications are offered for qualifying small business, women/minority owned business enterprises and disabled veterans business enterprises.
