MBJ Business Marketplace

Mississippi Business Marketplace moves to early fall

The Mississippi Business Journal has announced that it is moving the date of its annual Business Marketplace Event to early fall. This event, held at the Mississippi Trade Mart, and formerly known as the Business & Technology Expo, is the premier business networking event held in the region each year.

This year, the event has been expanded to include new categories of business and other related events. As a result, there were a number of scheduling issues in getting the changes completed, and numerous exhibitors indicated that they would prefer to see the event in the early fall, rather than the spring.

Health Care Heroes will be the breakfast event for the MBJ Marketplace. Leaders in Finance will be the luncheon event. Submit your nominations today for either event by clicking here.

Originally scheduled for Thursday, April 3, a new tentative date of Friday, September 19 has been set for the event, and information will be provided to all vendors and exhibitors relative to the new date.

The annual Top 40 under 40 event, normally held at the Marketplace, will instead be held at the Hilton on County Line Road on Friday, April 4. Also, the Best Places to Work event, scheduled for the Business Marketplace, will now be held at the Hilton on Thursday, May 15.
