A Business Exhibition You Better Not Miss!
The National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) is hosting their extremely successful My Business Expo on the 25th of August 2016 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in Cape Town. Although we mainly focus on the online aspect for small businesses, we want to let you know about the My Business Expo as it is a really great platform to showcase your business and gain maximum exposure if you take part as an exhibitor.
The My Business Expo is considered to be Africa’s largest exhibition when it comes to starting up and growing a business. So making sure that you take part can be a game-changer.
This is truly a massive event, with over 25 000 visitors and well over 500 exhibitors expected over the Johannesburg and Cape Town events. So reserving your spot early is a must.
If you did happen to miss the Johannesburg leg of the event which took place earlier this year at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, you will need to make your way down to Cape Town or else, you will have to settle for waiting until the middle of March next year (2017) for when the next Johannesburg event is scheduled.

Simply put, you are going to be able to connect and network with like-minded business owners and entrepreneurs, massively increase your exposure, and you are going to learn a lot about what it takes to run a successful business.
