Hi Folks,




We've been trying to make the transition for the past month from managing registrations individually for Small Business Classroom to introducing a one-ticket price for all 32 seminars. Today we're glad to make the switch, and formally introducing the conference component at NY Business Expo.



The Conference Component, aka Small Business Classroom



The 2012 NY Business Expo (in Association with NYEBN) is unique in that it has a stand-alone conference component, including 32 45-minute seminars featuring world renowned speakers from a variety of industries. If you have a business or think of starting a business, you shouldn't miss this!


So overall, what's the benefit to NYEBN members by putting all seminars together with a conference format? You'll be able to register for a conference with quality content on the cheap and have access to its entire content rather than only pieces of it.


If you'd like to read more details on the conference component, visit our blog. Get your early bird ticket (more than 50% off), register on Eventbrite or Meetup.




August Exhibiting Discount Ends This Friday


We've been constantly rolling out good deals for our member companies that are interested in exhibiting at NY Business Expo. For example, we had the Early Bird program until the end of July. Then we have the 10%-off-on-any-size-of-booths until the end of this month (August). We may have other deals. But I'm almost positive that nothing can beat this "10% off" price in the future. So if your company wants to reserve its exhibiting space, take action NOW. Find details here @ http://nybusinessexpo....




Tonight's Event: Early Bird Price Extended to Noon Today


At NYEBN, we are always trying to maximize the resources to our members. To apply that philosophy to tonight' event, we've extended the Early Bird deal to noon today. So if you still want to get into our open bar event, don't forget to RSVP before in the next one to two hours. Registration available on Meetup or Eventbrite. We're expecting a good turnout for what's going to be one of the few networking mixers left in 2012.




NY Business Expo 2012 Video Series (Episode 2) ft. Nihal Mehta



We did our episode 2 with Nihal Mehta. Listen to him talking about why it's crucial to attend his seminar (YouTube) at the expo. Registration to the conference is available here. Check out more details about our conversation here.





So After Our Last KickStarter Event, What Happens Now?


Having worked in the event business for almost four years, there is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling than seeing our event goers apply the techniques they learned from the events to the real world and succeed. Introducing Nayia Moysidis from Writer's Bloq. You may know her as the "ambitious girl who is trying to change the publishing industry." Check out her KickStarter campaign and especially the video. Amazing!


So Nayia attended our KickStarter panel back on July 5. I vividly remember her because she was the last person walking into the room and she asked :) Now her campaign has raised over $6,500 during the first five days. Let's help her and give her campaign a push. You can follow her campaign here. Congrats Nayia for raising so much in so little time!
