If you’re near Cleveland on October 19 and October 20, you may want to stop by the I-X Center for a small business conference being hosted by The Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE).
The conference includes 50 breakout workshops in the areas of sales, marketing, HR, money, social media, technology, as well as personal and professional development. Business owners can also benefit from a 75-plus exhibit business-to-business trade show, countless networking opportunities, interactive learning labs, and peer-to-peer roundtables on topics pertinent to small businesses.
Other exciting components of the 2011 Small Business Conference include the COSE Ten Under 10 Awards, recognizing the top ten Northeast Ohio businesses with less than ten employees, and four hands-on learning labs featuring topics such as social media, QuickBooks, and database management.
The Conference is free to the first attendee from a COSE member company. Additional representatives from the same company are invited to attend for only $75. The non-member price for the Conference is $499. Breakfasts, lunches and parking are free with registration.
