Edison, NJ (PRWEB) February 24, 2015
Parnassah Expo, one of the largest business-to-business trade show and business conferences in the United States and the largest serving the Orthodox Jewish business community, will take place March 17-18 at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center with over 300 exhibitors and 10,000 people expected to attend.
Organized by the nonprofit Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce, Parnassah Expo provides extraordinary networking, sales and sponsorship opportunities for businesses seeking to reach the lucrative, niche market of the Orthodox Jewish business community. The B2B trade show, which fills the 150,000 square-foot convention and exposition center in Edison, N.J., is attended by company owners in all industries seeking services to grow their businesses. Attendees and exhibitors come from all over the United States and the world including Australia, the UK, Belgium, Russia, Chile and Israel. The expo is also open to the public.
Among the hundreds of businesses that have exhibited their products and services and sponsored the B2B trade show and business conference over the past three years are Investors Bank, Meridian Capital Group, American Express, Google, Aflac, Verizon, Blackberry, Prudential, Wells Fargo Advisors, Community Federal Savings Bank, First Meridian Mortgage and Investors Financial Group.
Parnassah Expo features prominent keynote speakers, a high-profile CEO panel, a live “shark tank” competition with venture capital firms and Wall Street CEOs offering up to a million dollars of investment in presenting startups, and 60 different business conference seminar tracks including technology, marketing, real estate and construction, online sales, finance, law, healthcare, manufacturing and distribution, nonprofits, insurance, human resources and women in the workforce. Past keynote speakers have included New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, world renowned criminal defense attorney Benjamin Brafman and former AIPAC President and Chairman of the Board Howard Friedman, who is also a founding partner of hedge fund Lanx Management LLC.
The B2B trade show and business conference also features a networking breakfast for show exhibitors and a VIP networking dinner for CEOs and business leaders. “This is a huge business networking event and an incredible opportunity for companies to come and get introduced, connect and find new business opportunities in the Jewish community,” said Duvi Honig, founder and chief executive officer of the Parnassah Expo and the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce. “Thousands of business owners are attending to look for services to grow their businesses. The Expo offers all business sponsors and exhibitors an incredible opportunity to showcase their products and services in front of the Jewish business world, which is very powerful.”
Parnassah Expo (Parnassah is the Hebrew word for “Livelihood”) grew out of a job and education fair first set up by Honig in 2012 in response to the financial crisis and high unemployment rate in the Jewish community, and has evolved into one of the largest B2B trade show and business conferences of its kind. In addition to establishing Parnassah Expo and the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce, Honig founded the Parnassah Network to create economic development initiatives for the Orthodox Jewish community and publishes Business Network Magazine, the Jewish community’s only business magazine.
Last March just prior to Parnassah Expo, Honig led a delegation of Orthodox Jewish business leaders to Washington to meet with Matt Nosanchuk, the White House’s official Jewish community liaison. And last November, mere hours after the polls closed on Election Day, newly-elected Sen. Cory Booker was personally in touch with Honig about how he could help meet the economic development needs of the Orthodox Jewish community and discussed his hopes for replicating the Parnassah Network’s success with the African American and other minority communities in New Jersey. Two days later, Sen. Booker’s deputy state director, George Helmy, visited Parnassah Network’s Lakewood, N.J. headquarters. Honig has also enlisted Lakewood Mayor Isaac Akerman to serve on Parnassah Expo’s executive committee.
