Counting down to one big show

The state’s premier business-to-business trade show, the Mississippi Business and Technology EXPO, celebrates it’s 22nd year later this week.

This year’s event, a Mississippi Business Journal special production, will be held Wednesday, January 19th and Thursday, January 20th 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 some two decades 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 and Technology 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 2005. 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 two decades? Only time will tell, but the possibilities are limitless.

Look for additional EXPO coverage in this week’s Mississippi Business Journal, including the Top 40 Under 40 special section.
