Held on November 19th in the Ethan Allen Hotel in Danbury, CT, the 19th annual B to B showcase was created with the purpose of being an exciting experience for local business owners, complete with panel discussions and a networking reception. According to CTSBDC Advisor and panel presenter Nelson Merchan, it succeeded in doing just that.
“There were 70 exhibitors from around the community, and over 400 attendees,” Nelson says. “It was, for sure, the largest networking event in the area.”
Nelson himself was the star of the showcase’s main event, an hour long panel discussion titled “It’s Now or Never: How To Take Your Business To The Next Level.” In this event, Nelson taught over 40 audience-members about why companies may reach a period of stagnation, and how to get out of those situations. Nelson also explained his role as a CTSBDC Business Advisor, and talked about how they are available to help new and existing businesses all over the state at no cost.
According to Nelson, the turnout was incredible, and many people came from far away to attend this event, including two sisters from the White Plains area. All in all, the 19th Annual B to B Showcase was once again a complete success.
