Trade show celebrates two profitable decades

MBJ Editorial

The state’s premier business-to-business trade show, Mississippi Business EXPO, celebrates two profitable decades later this month.

This year’s event, a Mississippi Business Journal special production, will be held Wednesday, January 22nd and Thursday, January 23rd at the Trade Mart in Jackson.

In a world of marketing madness and cheap gimmickry, EXPO stands out as an original.

What began as a small-scale trade show 20 years ago, is now Mississippi’s — and one of the South’s — most exciting business-to-business networking opportunities and a showcase for the state’s economic development turnaround.

Mississippi’s leading companies and economic development agencies, as well as small businesses, colleges and universities, come together at EXPO to tout the best that Mississippi has to offer.

From import/export specialists to the latest technology offerings to online banking options, EXPO has something for everyone.

So, why else should you attend EXPO this year? Perhaps the best reason is that the Mississippi Business EXPO is a dynamic event which unifies the state’s business community unlike any other event, and it needs your support.

Take advantage of the opportunities at EXPO 2003. More than likely, you’ll walk away from it with a new respect for what Mississippi business is all about.

Where will Mississippi business — and EXPO — be in another 20 years? Only time will tell, but the possibilities are limitless.

Look for additional EXPO coverage in next week’s issue.
