Every year Southeast Volusia Chamber of Commerce hosts a wonderful event for local business owners called The New Smyrna Beach Home & Business Expo. This is when all the local business owners register and pay for a spot to promote and introduce themselves to other business and the public.
This is not only an exciting event but a great way to generate leads for potential future business. The day of the event all the business owners go to their assigned location and set up their booths. Banners, props, pamphlets and business cards are laid out on the table along with free trinkets to hand out to the public.
Typically before people arrive we like to pass out our own information to other business owners in hopes of landing a few clients. Usually there is live music, martial arts demonstrations, games, food trucks and even rides. If you live in Edgewater and New Smyrna Beach this can be quite as you won’t have to go far for entertainment.
One of our favorite parts of the day is when Mark from Keys to Our City stops by to take photos of everyone. This year he even added drones to cover the entire event on video which can be later viewed on YouTube.
You encounter so many wonderful people walking with their families and pets. It is almost like watching a parade for those of us behind booths. After a long day of mingling you walk away with a few contacts that could lead to clients.
I would recommend this event to anyone that wants to reach out to not only the public but other business owners as well. You may just end up partnering with another business owner and make your business grow.
