SLO STC's Business & Professional Fair -
Achieving Action through Understanding”

Our Second Annual
SLO STC Business and Professional Fair

Monday Evening, May 19, 2008

 

Poster for the SLO STC Business and Professional FairThis year's Fair proved to be another exciting event that showcased our local associates specializing in business, technical, creative, and marketing communications! As with all of our chapter events, it was open to the public and there was absolutely no cost to exhibit or attend.

Nearly 50 participants networked with all kinds of new prospective clients and service providers, or people who might become collaborators or sources of referral. We raffled off a wonderful gift basket containing edible goodies and various items contributed by exhibitors.

Seventeen exhibits appeared in the KCBXnet Training Room and lobby (see the exhibitor list below). Similar to last year, people brought their business cards, brochures, résumés, audio books, pamphlets, books, samples, laptop-driven demonstrations, foam board displays, and more, engaging visitors and each other in a comfortable exchange of ideas and information.

Examples of product and service exhibits included:

  • Technical communication (e.g., documentation, editing, design, training)
  • Creative communication (e.g., graphic design, fiction and non-fiction writing)
  • Marketing communication (e.g., PR, publicity, Web design, and e-commerce systems)
  • Business problem-solving (e.g., achieving results through systems, processes, instructional design)
  • Supporting professional services

Our First Annual
SLO STC Business and Professional Fair

Monday Evening, May 21, 2007

Last year's SLO STC Business and Professional Fair (below) literally buzzed with conversation and energy — and resembled a cross between "share and compare notes" and "networking on steroids."

It offered participants a terrific opportunity to "hang out a shingle" for the evening or just come and see what their associates are doing in the businesses and professions that they never have enough time to tell their colleagues about.

Sixteen business owners, freelancers, and instructors displayed samples of their wares or their work in the KCBXnet Training Room and lobby (see the exhibitor list below). We welcomed chapter constituents and the general public to visit the displays and have insightful "one-on-ones" with exhibitors.

People brought their business cards, brochures, résumés, audio books, pamphlets, books, samples, laptop-driven demonstrations, foam board displays, and more, engaging visitors and each other in a comfortable exchange of ideas and information.

A number of new collaborations formed and people left with a brand new set of friends and contacts!

See some of the 2007 event photos and the list of exhibitors, below!
