My Business Expo comes to Port Elizabeth


The National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) is gearing up to host its 7th My Business Expo in Port Elizabeth for thousands of delegates from all over the Eastern Cape and beyond.

It will be held at the Boardwalk Convention Centre on Thursday 13 August 2015 and incorporates Business Start-up Expo, Access to Finance Indaba - new to South Africa and My Business Seminars. The latter is an experience where top industry guest speakers deliver the growth solutions, ideas and strategies you will need to succeed in the ever-changing competitive climate. 

"There are a host of learning opportunities to be had at the My Business Expo," says Mike Anderson, Founder and CEO of the NSBC. "In particular, the range of seminars offers SMEs invaluable advice on a range of critical business topics, this year with special focus on the two biggest challenges facing SMEs today - accessing finance and building a customer base."

Anderson adds that whether you need information around how to access finance or to control your cash flow, growing a customer base, registering a trademark, advice on obtaining the right IT solutions to suit your business, or guidance on how to approach sales, there is an expert seminar at the expo discussing it.

"SMEs can learn much at this event, including the legal aspects of starting a business - such as compliance, tax and BEE certificates, how to run a mobile office and even how the new budget may affect you. Furthermore, you can learn about the power of social media, which has enormous reach and is an inexpensive tool to use, making it ideal for growing a small business," he suggests.

My Business Expo is free to attend, provided you pre-register
