What trends are really going to cause shifts in the next wave of the $500 Billion business to small business marketplace? It is a critical question that Dave Walker and I have pondered as we built our unique event, The B2SMB Summit, which is now just two weeks away, Oct. 3-4, in Chicago.
Many of the real game changers in the industry are joining us on stage in Chicago – everyone from Office Depot SVP Janet Schisn to LinkedIn’s Ryan Wilson to Dell’s Erik Day to DexYP’s Gordon Henry to Go Daddy’s Steven Aldrich. We have 33 featured industry leaders — plus top moderators, including Streetfight CEO David Hirschman, Crain’s Chicago Business Tech Editor John Pletz, Bredin CEO Stu Richards, longtime digital exec and consultant Peter Hutto and RSL Media CEO Robert Levin.
If you are able to join your peers in B2SMB at the event– or even, if you aren’t able to make it — you’ll find a wonderful preview of their views and news here, and on The B2SMB Blog.
