Marketing Expo Sponsorship Provides Excellent Opportunity For American Trade Exchanges

An astounding 40% of business owners in the U.S. have reported that the economy is preventing them from spending any money on marketing and sales, according to a survey released by American Express OPEN which is the company�s small business division.

That�s why we found an upcoming marketing expo (www.TheMarketingExpo.com) in Carlsbad (CA) so interesting. In addition to exhibitors, six speakers have teamed up so as to conduct various workshops. The typical small business owner�s time constraints are well documented. Having a variety of marketing expertise and possibilities (products & services) in one location for quick, easy shopping makes perfect sense.

A trade exchange bringing all of its clients (who offer marketing services) together once a quarter for a one-day expo would be a fantastic service for the exchange�s membership. It would also be a valuable attraction for outside businesses, i.e. potential new members.

Marketing products and services on exhibit could include:

  • Advertising agencies

  • Marketing and sales consultants

  •  Ad-product specialty companies

  •  Mailing-list companies

  • Direct mail services

  • Web site designers

  • SEO (search engine optimization) companies

  • Copy writers

  • Graphic designers

  • Sign shops

  • Printing companies

  • Publishing companies

  • Radio stations

  • TV stations

  • Billboard companies

  • Writers

  • Newspapers

  •  Magazines

  • Chambers of commerce

  • Marketing associations

  • Business coaching services

  • Photographers and others
