WHY

Produced and hosted by DJ Heckes, CEO of EXHIB-IT!, the goal of the B2B Expo is simple: To create an environment of collaboration and cooperation in which local business leaders can come together to help each other succeed, profit and thrive. By networking in this way, not only do local businesses benefit, but the local economy as well.

In addition, all proceeds from the silent auction will be donated to Victory Outreach Albuquerque.

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!

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!
