See us at the Small Business Expo, Dallas, May 14.

Small Business Expo

Vend have been supporting SMB retailers right from the get-go, which is just one of the reasons we’re so excited to be exhibiting and speaking at the Small Business Expo series. Hosted in ten of America’s bustling business communities, the expo is now the nation’s largest business tradeshow, conference and networking event focussed on helping small businesses succeed.

The best part? It’s totally free to attend!

First up on the Vend road trip is Dallas, Texas.

Held at the Dallas Convention Center, this not-to-be-missed mega event is a fantastic opportunity to network with other local business owners, and learn new resources and tools to grow your business. You’ll also get the chance to hear some amazing keynote speakers, including Mark Victor Hansen (best selling co-creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul), and attend workshops from successful industry leaders like Bill Walsh, from Powerteam International.
