The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has announced registration is now open for the National Small Business Week Virtual Conference. The conference is being held on September 22 – 24, 2020.
National Small Business Week (NSBW) is an annual celebration hosted by SBA celebrating small businesses.
This year’s conference will feature a number of educational panels. The panels will provide attendees insight into how small businesses can recover and contribute to a stronger economy.
The 3-day event recognizes some of the most outstanding entrepreneurs in the United States. This recognition includes commemorating the achievements of national award winners, including the National Small Business Person of the Year.
“The National Small Business Week event schedule includes three days recognizing America’s outstanding entrepreneurs, shining a spotlight on the nation’s 30 million small businesses across the country,” the SBA says.
Small Business Trends is a proud media partner of National Small Business Week.
