Townsquare Expos, producer of several of the largest expo events in the Tristate region, recently hosted the 10th Trade Brooklyn at the New York Marriot at Brooklyn Bridge in Downtown Brooklyn. The business-to-business trade show attracted an estimated 2,500 business professionals, owners and leaders along with more than 100 exhibiting businesses representing vast areas of industry from the Brooklyn and greater metropolitan area. 

Brooklyn is the fastest growing borough in New York City and the largest in terms of population. Trade Brooklyn explored and celebrated the entrepreneur spirit and explosive business rebirth occurring in the area with premium B2B seminars and learning opportunities. 

The annual business trade show proved once again to be a catalyst for valuable business cross marketing and promotion as well as networking and provided educational business growth and success seminars for the business-minded of Brooklyn and across the greater metropolitan region. Drawing business people from the five boroughs and beyond, the energy at this year’s show demonstrated that the entrepreneur spirit is very much alive and well in Brooklyn.  

“Trade Brooklyn has grown alongside the borough of Brooklyn. The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Brooklyn and our goal each year and with each show is to play an integral part in the business marketing and growth. Businesspeople meet here face to face and introduce their products and services. This allows their business to grow and thrive.  We see the show as true microcosm of the business community in Brooklyn,” said Townsquare Expos Director Jonathan Levin.

This year the show expanded seminar offerings. More than 20 seminars were offered that focused on a variety of marketing and business subjects, which included how to build scalable businesses, business succession planning, social media management and how to protect business owners from cybercrimes. Trade Brooklyn partnered again with business coaches from the Small Business Administration’s SCORE program who met with dozens of business owners and aspiring business owners to discuss business challenges. 

The show featured an interactive business breakfast led by networking expert Scott Eisenberg, CEO and founder of Swap the Biz. Special guest Matt Goerke, inventor of the Memory Switch Program, also shared memory retention techniques designed to help professionals. New York state Department of Labor Acting Commissioner Roberta Reardon made a special guest appearance giving a briefing on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s regional budget. New to this year’s show, The Personal Branding Pavilion, gave show attendees the opportunity to ask questions and gain valuable marketing strategies from personal branding and public relations expert Bill Corbett Jr. of Corbett Public Relations.
