Marcie’s Thoughts on the Cook County Business Opportunity Expo

Cook County Business Opportunity Expo

I attended the Expo and did not see many people.  It could have been because they were attending the Marketing Strategies workshop that was going on when I got there in the 11:00 hour or it could have been due to a lack of interest.   I can honestly say that there were less than 50 people walking the expo when I was there.  The event was scheduled to begin at 8:30.

I did have a chance to speak to some of the vendors and collect information.  The elevator pitch that I created turned out pretty good.  It appears that the opportunities to do business with county, state and city are plentiful.  The information was valuable.  Although I did not attend any workshops, they seem to be beneficial.

So, where were the people?
