The eighth annual MarketPlace rural entrepreneurship conference is only two weeks away. It will be held Tuesday, Feb. 11 at the Nielsen Community Center, West Point. The theme this year is “Connect. Learn. Be Inspired.”
MarketPlace is an event focused on energizing small businesses and rural communities.
This marks the second straight year for the event to be held locally.
The full day includes several educational sessions and exhibitor booths with abundant networking opportunities.
Dave Wimmer, former CEO of Wimmer’s Meats, will present the keynote address. Brian Depew, Executive Director for the Center for Rural Affairs, will give the morning’s opening address.
Businesses and organizations have a chance to tap into many outstanding marketing opportunities by having an exhibit booth, selling their products on-site in the MarketPlace Store, or through sponsoring MarketPlace.
More information is also available on the MarketPlace website: www.cfra.org/marketplace/ne-13.
Registration is $60 if made before Feb. 7. Registrations after that date can’t be guaranteed.
