HAUPPAUGE, NEW YORK, March 23, 2011 – The largest one-day Business to Business Trade Show on Long Island is just around the corner! HIA-LI, the recognized voice for business on Long Island, will hold its 23rd Annual Business Trade Show & Conference on Thursday, May 26 from 9 AM to 4 PM, at the Suffolk County Community College Sports & Exhibition Complex, Brentwood Campus. The event, hosted by HIA-LI in partnership with the Long Island Forum for Technology (LIFT) and Suffolk County Community College, will offer businesses on Long Island the ability to Connect, Collaborate, Inform and Get Business. More information for attendees, sponsors and exhibitors is available at http://hiali.org/tradeshow2011/.
Through first-rate programming – including a keynote presentation from Newsday columnist and Fox News analyst Ellis Henican and a town meeting with Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy discussing Long Island Initiatives – the Trade Show promises to provide a forum for important conversations on economic, business and workforce development.
The Trade Show will bring together over 4,000 attendees and some 400 exhibitors from the business, technology, professional, educational and governmental segments to conduct business, generate sales leads, and participate in a series of topical seminars.
“This year’s theme, ‘Connect, Collaborate, Inform and Get Business,’ is especially appropriate for our event. It is a pivotal point in history for Long Island and beyond,” said HIA-LI President Terri Alessi–Miceli. “While our trade show and event may not provide all the answers, it will put decision-making attendees and exhibitors into an environment where they can share ideas, form partnerships, and initiate solutions. Sixty-three percent of our attendees are CEOs or business owners who represent service providers, technology companies, distributorships, manufacturers and education—all key industries on Long Island.”
The objectives of the 23rd Annual Long Island Business Trade Show and Conference include educating and informing members of the Long Island business, professional, educational and governmental communities of the innovative methods, best practices, continuous learning and training, new product development and use of information technology already being used by high performing companies that dramatically outperform their competitors.
The event will promote the resources and support available from Long Island’s leading companies, economic development agencies, consulting organizations, colleges and universities, professional societies and trade associations.
