As the name of this blog indicates, the biggest networking event of the year is back and better than ever! Formally the Topeka Chamber of Commerce Business Expo, the Greater Topeka Partnership Business Expo will take place October 23, 2018 at the Ramada Topeka Downtown. The Business Expo is the perfect place to showcase your business and engage with a captive audience about your offerings. Both Greater Topeka Partnership members and non-members are welcome to have booths at the event. 

What GTP events do I need to attend in September?

Join us prior to the Expo for lunch and a keynote presentation. Lunch is open to exhibitors and GTP members, but space is limited. Make sure to purchase your lunch ticket in advance. Following the lunch, exhibits will be open to the public from 1-4 p.m.

Attendees are encouraged to explore the Ramada’s Atrium and Ballroom at their own pace. Interact face-to-face with a variety of professionals representing a variety of businesses; including banks, tech providers, restaurants and cleaning companies. Exhibitors have been known to include games, prizes and creative technology to help better individually inform the attendees on their company’s specific services. 

The Partnership wants to see exhibitors put their best booth forward! Prizes will be awarded to booths in the following categories: most interactive, most creative, best product demo/technology, best first-time exhibitor, most informative, friendliest booth and best in show. 

The day will conclude with the GTP’s October Business Unwind following the event closing to the public for more fun and networking. The Business Unwind is a GTP members-only event. Drinks and hor ‘d’oeuvres will be provided, giving exhibitors a more intimate setting to showcase their businesses and network. Booth locations are first come, first serve.

Booth pricing and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Please contact Ashlee Spring for event questions and Kim Redeker for sponsorship inquiries.
