New this year!
As a result of the incredible growth of our Convention, we’ve moved it to Kalahari Convention Center, Ohio’s largest convention facility. Kalahari takes you just far enough from your office, so you can really get away and focus on the incredible content at the Convention. Plus, Kalahari is a resort destination and we encourage you to bring your family and make a weekend of it. And finally, the move to Kalahari allows us to partner with other organizations in placed like Detroit, Toledo and Columbus to attract small business professionals from all over the Great Lakes Region…meaning you’ll have more people to connect with and learn from.
But our move to Kalahari isn’t the only thing new at this year’s Convention. We’ve also added more keynote sessions with an all-star line-up of national speakers that are sure to enlighten and motivate you.
