EXHIB-IT!'s annual B2B event is a great opportunity to showcase your business to the Albuquerque networking community as well as introduce yourself to other local businesses and strengthen business relationships you've already started. HUNDREDS attend each year. It truly is a "don't miss" event.

The B2B Expo NM is by far the largest collective of local talented entrepreneurs under one roof, and a great event for critical business-to-business networking. I loved it!

The business to business aspect of the event is fantastic! It really gives us a chance to
showcase our food and service while in a relaxed, inviting environment. We have made many connections and gained new catering clients and restaurant customers every year.

The ability to interact with other businesses and the support of local charities makes this a very worthwhile event. We very much look forward to being a Platinum Sponsor at the upcoming 10th Annual B2B Expo.

Exhib-it’s B2B Expo is THE networking event of the year. This is our fourth year as an exhibitor and sponsor because it’s the one event in which we participate that always results in expanding our brand AND our client base. Each year’s event improves over the last!
