2014 Business Expo exceeds expectations

Posted 8 years ago on · Permalink

The Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade (APBOT) hosted Business Expo 2014 on Tuesday, September 9th at the Ajax Convention Centre and welcomed exhibitors from many sectors including professional services, community organizations, retailers, hospitality and government – something for everyone!

Meridian Credit Union was the presenting sponsor for the event and our hospitality sponsors were Hardiman Mount & Associates, Helene Ata – Investors Group and Ajax Convention Centre. New this year, we had a Business Networking Café where attendees could network while enjoying a cash bar and complimentary hors d’oeuvres.

Also new this year we had two twenty-minute educational seminars. The first of the seminars, presented by Kevin Smith of Impact Assured Business Services, focused on “Building & Presenting the Pitch Perfect Presentation”. Later, Malcolm MacTaggart, Executive Director of Spark Angels Network shared his insights on the “Top 10 Mistakes Business Owner/Managers Make.”

APBOT Executive Director Kathy McKay was also pleased to announce that our brand new website at will officially launch on Monday, September 15th!

Finally, we love to give away door prizes at our events. Sarah Gilding of Direct Buy won complimentary registration to 2015 networking series of events—a 165$ value!

All members who brought a non-member with them were eligible to win complimentary admission for one to ANY APBOT signature event (President’s Dinner, Mayors’ Breakfast, Regional Chair’s Luncheon, Business Links Golf Tournament, Business Excellence Awards, or Christmas Lunch). Rick Sergison of InnerPOW Coaching was the lucky winner of this valuable prize.
