You will be able to make valuable connections, gain visibility, market your business or professional career, and acquire tools to help grow your business. There will be over 120 exhibitors and we are expecting between 800-1,000 attendees!

Q.
Why did you move the Expo from Sandia Resort & Casino?

A.
Every year, our attendees spread the news of the B2B Event and it has grown significantly each year. We needed a facility that could accommodate our many needs for educational roundtables, event floor plan with over 120 exhibitors, and AV/technology, as well as an atmosphere that would continue to bring in attendees — and Isleta could do all this, and with great customer service, too! We feel that the venue at Isleta is at a caliber that reflects the B2B Expo and its attendees.

 


 

Q.
Where is Isleta Resort & Casino?

Isleta Resort & Casino is located at 11000 Broadway Blvd. SE, Albuquerque, NM 87105, just 7 minutes south of downtown Albuquerque at Interstate 25 & Highway 47, exit 215.

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!
