Women’s Community Business Network Sponsoring Santa Barbara Business Expo on April 20

The first Santa Barbara Business Expo sponsored by the Women’s Community Business Network is planned for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 20 at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Hotel & Resort, 633 E. Cabrillo Blvd.

Organizers hope to make the expo and annual event.

The expo will feature prominent area business people who will share their experiences and offer business tips and tactics. The expo will include dozens of displays, booths, hand-outs, samples and information on a variety of organizations with business-oriented products and services.

VIP admission is $25. Those attendees who pre-register online receive an additional discounted price of $20. General and student admission is $10. Exhibitors will receive five tickets free. Complimentary parking is included.

Organizers say the Santa Barbara Business Expo is an interactive networking convention designed specifically for the needs of the Santa Barbara business community.

“We want to demonstrate high value, high quality, premium resources and exceptional benefits from participating in this event,” said Sandy Goe, founder and chief executive officer of the Women’s Community Business Network. “Each exhibitor and attendee will have the opportunity to be included in the on-line business directory. That’s another $135 value.”

Expo speakers will focus on the importance of networking in business; why your business must grow to survive; how to use social media for your business; funding your business; printing and advertising in 2013; and how Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, can affect business.

Pre-registration for vendors for the expo is now open. Organizations looking to set up a booth and be a part of this exciting event should sign up quickly because the best and most visible spots will go first, event organizers said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
