Re: New Jersey Chamber of Commerce to Host 4th Annual Everything Jersey Business Conference & Expo
The 4th annual Everything Jersey Business Conference & Expo
New Jersey Chamber of Commerce
October 26th, Noon to 8 p.m., Pines Manor in Edison
On October 26, the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce will host the 4th annual Everything Jersey Business Conference & Expo at the Pines Manor in Edison – the most effective business-to-business event in New Jersey.
The event will feature Caren Franzini, CEO of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, to discuss financing assistance, state business incentives and venture fund investments. Health policy expert Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute, will discuss the impact of federal health care reform on employers. Also on hand will be A.J. Khubani, ‘the infomercial king” and the CEO of Fairfield-based Telebrands, best known for its television marketing of such products as the PedEgg and Go Duster. He will evaluate inventions by New Jersey entrepreneurs with the goal of finding the next “As Seen on TV” blockbuster product.
Other highlights will include:
- The unveiling of Biz-Bond, the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce’s own patented, web-based matchmaking program designed to connect companies. It’s like Internet dating for business people. The exclusive offering, created by the NJ Chamber and a firm called The Lead Generator, matches companies that can do business with each other, and offers leads in both the public and private sectors.
- 12 “how-to” workshops on topics like investing in urban centers; using social media to increase your bottom line; and the in and outs of landing government contracts.
- 25 purchasing agents from government agencies and major corporations will hold one-on-one meetings with business owners interested in becoming suppliers.
The event begins at noon with the opening of the expo floor and workshops. It will be capped off with a “Diners & Drafts Networking Social” between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. featuring food and craft beer from the Garden State’s best diners and breweries.
“The expo is designed to help New Jersey business owners make new contacts, educate them on critical topics and show ways to retain existing customers – all of which can lead to prosperity as New Jersey emerges from the recession,” said Carol Gabel, vice president, business development, at the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce. “The past few years have been challenging, which makes this conference more important than ever.”
