A Truly Ground-Breaking Vendor Opportunity...
Prepare to satisfy your hunger on Tuesday, March 19, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. as we unveil the hottest new forum for connecting your business with other southeastern Michigan businesses that are eagerly searching for innovative ways to market their products and services in 2013 and beyond. You have what they are looking for and this event The Creative Exchange is your opportunity to effectively showcase your services to a roomful of receptive business owners. 
Here’s how The Creative Exchange works. 
By private invitation, business owners, prequalified to have both the desire and the financial means to grow their companies, will gather for a complimentary luncheon in the ballroom at The Community House in Birmingham. The perimeter of the ballroom will be lined with 25 exhibitor booths – all offering some facet of marketing, promotional, training, financial or personal development. The interior area of the ballroom will feature 25 round banquet tables seating five to six business owners at each. Over the first 2 hours of the event, vendor representatives will rotate one at a time from attendee table to attendee table every six minutes giving a brief presentation on the services they offer. Meanwhile, during this timeframe, attendees will be enjoying a relaxing lunch and beverages while each vendor presents to them. Upon completion of their presentation, each vendor will supply all attendees at a given table with a card with their company and booth number on it inviting them to join them for a more detailed presentation upon completion of the “experiential? networking portion of the event. The last hour of the event will be reserved for attendees to circulate amongst the vendor booths venturing back to those companies that interested them.

Over the course of the event, you meet with 100 to 150 growth-minded business owners in a leisurely, fun and hassle-free way. What could be simpler and more rich with opportunity?
