1. We just announced the Expo after parties on 11/14 and 11/15



We have just announced the after hour parties for this year's NY Business Expo (in Association with NYEBN). Our host will be Alley NYC, a new co-working space located not far from Armory, where we host our day sessions. Alley NYC features a 16,000 square foot space and currently is the home of over 50 companies. If you missed any Small Business Classroom or Startup Central sessions during the day, the after hour parties would be where you catch up with our mentors, speakers and exhibitors. Open bar, and tons of cool people. Early bird registration is now open here.



2. New exhibiting specials from 10/1 - 10/15


New exhibitors will still get 5% off on booths of all sizes from 10/1 - 10/15. We also have a combo package available throughout October. Look at the current exhibitor list here @ http://nybusinessexpo.... Exhibiting details can be found here. Any questions? Shoot us a message here.



3. Still 50% off at Small Business Classroom for NYEBN members


Early bird price has ended for the conference component of the Expo. But as an NYEBN member, you can use the code "NYEBN" here to save 50%. We have scheduled up to 25 seminars so far. Not all of them are posted. But we'll try to finish posting them later today.



4. Next event - Startup Roundtable 17 with David Aronoff


I thoroughly enjoyed everything that Mr. Howard Morgan said last night. I appreciate his sincerity and honesty in trying to help young entrepreneurs. Next stop....  Startup Roundtable 17 with David Aronoff on 10/11. You can RSVP on Eventbrite or Meetup.
