For those of you who are not aware, the third annual SOHO and SME Business Conference and Expo is taking place at Toronto’s Metro Convention Centre on October 16. (For those not familiar yet with the abbreviations – “SOHO” means “Small Office, Home Office” and “SME” stands for “small or medium-sized enterprise” and is used interchangeably with “SMB” for “small or medium-sized business”.)
You can register at the following web site. If you don’t have the money for the registration, you should still go as you can attend the trade show for free so long as you pre-register (otherwise it will cost $25 at the door).
I have gone to the show the past two years and it has been a worthwhile time. Even if all you do is go to the trade show, there’s usually something there that will peak your interest in changing ways you currently do things. My trip there two years ago convinced me to go with the TREO instead of the Blackberry. Last year I saw a booth that had a paperless office system (or something close to it) and while I wasn’t interested in the product for my business, it did get me thinking about ways to streamline my paper organization.
Maybe I’ll see you there.
