The Expo has a food vendor that will be selling Pareve/Dairy Cholov Yisrael.
Additional food is available in the nearby Edison NJ Jewish community. (Click here for more Edison Kosher information).
Should I come as an attendee or an exhibitor?
As an Exhibitor you will receive excellent bang for your buck. Exhibits are comparatively inexpensive and give you a physical location where you will make contact with many people that will bring lasting value to your business.
As an Attendee, you will be able to meet others but the crowd won’t find you. And they won’t be able to see what you have to offer.
Exhibiting gives you extra exposure and opportunities to meet people that otherwise would never cross your path.
Exhibiting is not for every business type. Please consult with our sales team to see if it is a good fit for your business by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attending the expo is beneficial for any business owner, entrepreneur, freelancer, and anyone looking to network.
Will the JBiz Expo feature Career and Education sections as the Parnassah Expo had?
The main focus of the Expo is business.
However, we have seen the power of networking and we therefore recommend that all businesses that are looking to fill positions should advertise that within their booths.
Education opportunities are welcome to showcase at the JBiz Expo as well.
How many people are expected to attend the JBiz Expo?
Our Expos typically attract a crowd of several thousand attendees
Can I place an ad in the directory given out at the expo?
Anyone may place an ad but there is limited space available.
Please email to reserve an ad.
Will Wifi be available?
Wifi is available for purchase on site through the Expo Center’s exclusive company.
I have a service that can benefit exhibitors for their booth setup. How can I contact them?
Only members of our Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce will be included in exhibit servicing opportunities. It is free to sign up as a member by visiting www.ojchamber.com.
Please contact us once you are registered and we will discuss the options available to you to service our exhibitors. We NEVER give our exhibitor list or any other information to outside services, but we can let them know about you.
