I believe in having a servant heart when it comes to community volunteerism. We hold this event every year as a way of giving back to those organizations who truly serve our community.

While the Business-to-Business Expo is now a New Mexican tradition, this year EXHIB-IT! is doing things a little different. They are allowing nonprofits to promote themselves and gather votes through social media channels and other advertising avenues such as email blasts, website links and other marketing means they have available to get people to vote for their nonprofit organization. The nonprofit with the most votes wins the donated pop-up tabletop display.

All non-profits have to do is complete the Application and let EXHIB-IT! know how they would take advantage of a trade show/event marketing display if they were voted to be the winner. To submit the application non-profits need to visit EXHIB-IT!'s Facebook page starting February 5th at and follow the easy step-by-step process to enter their nonprofit into the contest. It is a requirement to read the terms and conditions before submitting an Application. As the winner will be decided by popular voting, the last step is to promote the Nonprofit to be voted to win!

Voting ends May 17th at Midnight. All entries must follow the guidelines and completely fill out the Application to be eligible to win. The Winner will be Notified by May 24th and the display will be awarded to the Winning Nonprofit Organization at the June 6th B2B Event.

Last year, the winner was People Living Through Cancer and the display was donated at this same event in addition to EXHIB-IT! donating two banner stands to two additional 2nd Place tied Winners: NDI, NM and Christina Kent Early Childhood Center.

The Business-to-Business Expo is an annual strategic alliance building networking event and as such it is one of the premier business events in New Mexico. Every year over 500 people attend and many businesses participate as exhibitors. The event is sponsored by many community businesses and is full of great food and prizes, as well as an abundance of building business relationships for all of the business professionals involved.

There will also be a Community “Pay It Forward” Silent Auction with donated items from the local business community with all Proceeds benefiting UNITE for the forgotten children of New Mexico on the evening of the Event.
