I have to tell you. It's extremely satisfying to be making progress daily to put together a show that you know will positively impact the bottom lines for thousands of small businesses.  Truthfully, that's how we will measure how successful this show will be.  It's not about how many people will attend.  It's not about how many tickets we can sell.  It's about YOU, which is the only thing that matters.  It's about how much VALUE you can take away from talking to our exhibitors, interacting with our mentors, or listening to our speakers.  So with three weeks out, let's do a reality check about where we are at now.



1. Over 100 exhibitors now. With less than 10% booth capacity available.


Check out our latest exhibitor list here. Many companies are launching new product lines for the first time at this event. Check out our last press release for more details. So come check out all the movers and shakers on the Exhibiting Floor. Book a booth for your company today before everything gets sold out. Any questions? Please drop us a note here.



2. Close to 3,500 signups and still counting!


We are trying to make the RSVP number as transparent as possible. On our home page, you will see the current RSVP count (top right corner). Keep in mind that the current RSVP count does not include most of the exhibitors, speakers, and mentors. So to be more accurate, we are actually at more than 3,500 now. Expect much more to come. Sign up today at http://nybusinessexpo....



3. What free content you can register for at NY Business Expo 2012
