Here’s what attendees said about our last virtual conference:
“Extremely convenient and full of useful, relevant information. Easy to navigate from the comfort of where ever you may be.”
“I almost held back because there is always a ‘catch’ and this was actually a free event that provided great value. Rare.”
“Just a wealth of information provided. Last 6 months I have been planning to start an online business. The conference allowed me to locate reliable information…The commercial sponsors also provided an enormous amount of information in the exhibit hall. Information that I couldn’t find by myself online.”
“I think this is a great place to get loads of information from and if you still can’t find it you can chat with someone who knows the answer right here.”
“[This conference] gave me access to good information, introduced me to new companies and opened my eyes to companies that make running my business much easier.”
“This has been so positive. I live in the middle of nowhere and have a hard time networking and this is great for networking and have been learning so much! Thank you.”
“What a fantastic resource for business owners. The best part is that it’s all free. Thanks so much!”
