We are tremendously excited around the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce of late regarding the NWA Business Conference & Expo scheduled for August 6. Granted, we're pretty excited about everything we do for our member businesses, but this is different. This is BIG!
As previously mentioned in a teaser back in February (http://tinyurl.com/ol5cec), the NWA Business Conference & Expo will be a world-class event offered in partnership with the Arkansas World Trade Center and the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal. What makes the NWA Busines Conference & Expo presented by Sam's Club (www.samsclub.com) and Your Community Phone Book (www.yourcommunityphonebook.com) so exciting this year is the combination of seminars and keynote speakers along with an Expo presented by Cherokee Casino (www.cherokeecasino.com) showcasing businesses, products and services. It's going to be a fantastic, one-stop business-building shop.
It's hard to contain our enthusiasm over the international component for the event as well, afforded by the engagement of the Arkansas World Trade Center. The day will include seminars and presentations from international-caliber speakers with topics related to three dedicated tracks: Small Business, General Business and International Business.
This year's keynote speaker sponsored by Cox Communications will be Clyde Fessler, former VP Business Development for Harley Davidson Motor Company. His story of marketing what has become one of the most recognized brands in the world and turning around a company on the brink of bankruptcy is inspiring and appropriate for businesses of every size. Stay tuned for a fantastic event publication from the NWA Business Journal in late July, as well. We encourage businesses to register no later than June 12 to be included.
The schedule of events will be available soon at www.NWABusiness.org, where you'll also find additional information as well as keynote tickets, all-accesspasses, booths, sponsorships and more details. Or, call the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce at 479-636-1240 - any member of our staff can help you!
