Expo invites SMBs to weigh up supply partners

13 Jul 12

Kiwi small and medium business owners are invited to directly compare their current service providers with the competition at an Auckland event taking place in October.

Event director Brent Spillane says the myBix Expo will provide a unique opportunity for SMBs to secure the best deals for all of their services from one location.

"SME business owners don’t have the time or resources to research whether their existing providers are ‘best in market’ for price and service offering,” Spillane says.

Exhibitors will include suppliers in technology fields like IT support, web development, social media and telecommunications, as well as other areas like freight, insurance, vehicle leasing and banking.

"Visitors will be able to go from supplier to supplier,” Spillane says, "[and] analyse their various features and benefits.”

Entry to the event will be free.

The inaugural myBix Expo is set to take place from October 14 to 16 at ASB Showgrounds. Registrations are currently open for attendees and exhibitors; go here for more.
