Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
EXHIB-IT!, Albuquerque’s leading trade show marketing experts, hosted a successful business to business expo on June 6, 2013 that was attended by over 520 people. This annual event provides an excellent venue for small business owners and entrepreneurs in the Albuquerque area to network with each other and create successful business relationships. The event also included a fundraiser for UNITE for the Forgotten Kids of NM which resulted in a donation of $8300 from EXHIB-IT!’s silent auction.
The Silent Auction was sponsored by local companies such as ABQ Lasik, Trolley, Albuquerque Florist, AlluraDerm, Artichoke Café, Aveda, Bank of the West, Bella Diamond & Watch, Brilliant Hair Studio and many more. This popular event always receives a great deal of community support. National companies such as Applebee’s, the Sheraton and Crowne Plaza hotel chains and Wells Fargo also sponsored this year’s EXHIB-IT! networking event.
Donations were made to the silent auction by local businesses. Proceeds from the auction went to support UNITE for the Forgotten Kids of NM (The Aspen Project/LifeQuest). A different non-profit organization is chosen each year to benefit from the proceeds.
EXHIB-IT!’s also hosted a Facebook non-profit contest that was won by ABQ Heading Home and they were rewarded with a display valued at $1800 at the business-to-business expo.
