New York, NY (PRESS RELEASE – January 26, 2009) – The 2009 Small Business Summit, a one-day event on February 3, 2009 at Digital Sandbox, is attracting leaders from small and large businesses looking to connect and learn from each other.
“Having face time with larger companies such as Dell, Microsoft and Network Solutions, that many of the attendees of the Summit are already familiar with and buy from, is one of the attractions for the small business owner attendees of the Summit”, says Marian Banker, MBA, President of Prime Strategies, a Summit producer. “For our sponsors, showing these small business owners how to grow their business, while highlighting the benefits of the sponsors’ products, is one of the reasons why they participate in the Summit.”
Bob Pearson, vice president of Communities and Conversations for Dell, will focus on customer relationships and services and how small businesses can implement similar strategies. “At the Summit, we believe there is a real opportunity for us to discuss how small businesses can better use technology to grow their companies,” says Pearson. “In addition, it gives us the chance to learn what tactics they are using in today’s competitive environment.”
“Every large business was once a small business,” adds Harry Brooks, Director of Search Marketing of Network Solutions. “The Summit allows us to not only share what we have learned along the way, but also discuss with small businesses the solutions we have developed to meet their needs.” Attendees can receive such onsite benefits as a free website analysis from Network Solutions.
