More than 1,300 people stopped by at April’s Trade Brooklyn, held at Stage 6 at Steiner Studios.
Over 100 exhibitors were a major draw at the event, organized by Cardinal Trade Group, Inc. (CTG).
According to Cardinal, Trade Brooklyn has grown into one of the most popular forums for the region’s best businesses, entrepreneurs and leaders, who are committed to seeking business growth in Brooklyn and beyond. Leading small, medium and large businesses participated, taking the opportunity to showcase their new products, services and cost-saving solutions for business owners and professionals.
Sponsored by Time Warner Cable Business Class, Constant Contact and Presti & Naegele, the April event was CTG’s sixth Trade Brooklyn. The exhibitors represented businesses and organizations from Brooklyn and the greater metropolitan area. Over 250 people attended the pre-show networking breakfast.
Attendees connected with prospects, vendors and referral sources representing a cross-section of business sectors. A series of educational programs conducted by leading small business speakers drew large numbers.
Discussions focused on learning solutions and strategies for overcoming challenges that businesses face today. Seminars centered on marketing strategies and tools, franchising businesses, cloud computing, sales techniques and more.
“My experience working with Trade Brooklyn was excellent. This year’s event was full of energy and opportunity. It was a great way to meet new people and potential clients,” said Gary Perone, Brooklyn Cyclones director of new business.
“Trade Brooklyn has proven to be the ‘go to’ business event. This record-breaking attendance at the spring show demonstrates the need for this type of business setting,” said Jonathan Levin, founder of Trade Brooklyn.
“Our goal is to connect businesspeople and give them the opportunity to keep abreast of ways to help them succeed in the marketplace,” Levin added. “Enthusiasm among the exhibitors and attendees was palpable, and from the feedback, they felt they benefited from participating and taking advantage of the variety of seminars offered at the show.”
