2011 YOB (Your Own Business) Fair
March 18, 2011
May 2010 the first YOB (Your Own Business) Fair was held in north
Phoenix and over 1,000 people attended workshops, seminars and gathered
information about launching and expanding their business. The success of
the YOB Fair was a direct result of true collaboration between
individuals, groups, civic agencies and organizations from across the
Valley. Today some of those collaborators include the State of Arizona
Commerce Authority, the City of Phoenix, Greater Phoenix SCORE, Arizona Small Business Association (asba),
Data Doctors, Franchise Resource Company, Growth Nation, Mojo Video
Marketing, NetworkingPhoenix.com, Pivot Productions, Inc., Three Dog
Marketing, Urman Enterprises, SBA, SBDC and many more.
thing is apparent -- Business owners and prospective business owners
are eager for increased access to the tools, information and training
that the Valley offers. The best way to tap into these resources is
through collaboration and the resultant job growth that comes as the
natural outcome of this working together -- grows our economy.
So on Friday, March 18th,
YOB is happening again and this time we expect to triple the attendance
and greatly expand the level of information that we offer the
free event will have tables for vendors, educational forums on current
topics, round tables for in-depth discussion and time for networking.
It is an all-day fair to allow for the free exchange of ideas and for
anyone attending to have the time to access all of the information
available and attend all of the classes and roundtables.
The location for the event is The El Zaribah Shrine at 552 No. 40th Street in Phoenix. The time is from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. To Register click on Seminars and Special Events and go to the March Calendar or call (602) 745-7250.
