Who should take a booth at the expo?
Exhibitors are businesses that have a service to offer other businesses. Services vary in industry but have in common that their customer and client base are business owners or decision makers. This can be general service businesses like graphics, accounting, product photography, software, training courses, etc and it can be a little more out of the box as well as long as the attendee demographic of business owners and decision makers make sense to be your customers too.
Who can /should attend the expo?
Attendees are generally business owners. Male and Female. Large and small businesses. Decision makers and managers in companies attend as well even if they are not the owner. Business of any type whether they are service or retail based. Whether they are freelance, online, or brick and mortar. Anyone that wants to network can join. Even those that feel that networking can lead to a job position can join as well.

Additional food is available in the nearby Edison NJ Jewish community.
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.
Is the Jbiz Expo a Job Fair
The focus of the Expo is business. When businesses grow they create job opportunities.
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?
More than a thousand attendees make their way to the Jbiz Expo.
Can I place an ad in the directory given out at the expo?
Anyone can place an ad if there is space. Must be reserved by June 5th.
Will Wifi be available?
Wifi is available for purchase on site through the Expo Center’s hot spots.
I have a service that can benefit exhibitors for their booth setup. How can I contact them?

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.
