They mean business.
Nearly 2,500 attendees and 150 business exhibitors came together at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge for this year’s Trade Brooklyn Business-to-business (B2B) Trade Show – an opportunity for business-savvy Brooklynites and other business-minded folk from across the greater metropolitan area to connect, network and learn from one another.
“The energy and enthusiasm that was present at this year’s Trade Brooklyn proves that the Brooklyn area remains a thriving community that is ideal for business,” said Jonathan Levin, founder of Trade Brooklyn. “The location of this year’s show was essential to its success as it was easily accessible and it provided a steady flow of attendees throughout the day.”
According to Cardinal Trade Group (CTG), the company that held the event, this year’s exhibitors highlighted local businesses and national corporations including banking and financial services, insurance companies, law offices, accounting firms, marketing companies, social media corporations, web design firms, telecommunications companies, wireless services, nonprofits, government agencies and business advocacy groups.
Additionally, vendors and participating businesses were able to showcase how some of their new products and/or services work. The show also featured about 20 educational business seminars led by local and national business experts who provided tips and strategies for growing a business and maintaining productivity.
“Trade Brooklyn’s new energizing seminars and activities helped us reach our goal of connecting businesspeople and creating opportunities and educating them for helping them grow their business,” added Levin. “From the feedback we have received, attendees found tremendous value in this year’s event and felt they had benefited from participating.”
