This year's Market New York Expo is expected to double in size and scope.

“We’re doubling in size and expect to double attendance as well, thanks to the larger space at the Jacob Javits Center and the impressive presenters and exhibitors we have on board for this year’s event,” said Event Management President Marc Sherer.

The second annual Market New York Expo – a business-to-business trade show, conference and networking event for small business owners and executives – will take place from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, May 21, at the Jacob Javits Center, 655 West 34th Street, New York, New York in Hall 1E. The all-day marketing and sales networking event will equip small business owners with the knowledge and strategy to increase their sales and growth in the digital age.

“We’re doubling in size this year and expect to double attendance as well, thanks to the larger space at the Jacob Javits Center and the impressive presenters and exhibitors we have on board for this year’s event,” said Event Management President Marc Sherer.

The Market New York Expo offers budding entrepreneurs and small business owners access to high-profile professionals such as Twitter’s head of Small Business, Russ Laraway. Laraway’s 11 a.m. keynote presentation, “Meet Twitter for Business," will teach small and medium-sized business owners about Twitter tools and tactics to drive results to their target audiences. Attendees will learn how to uncover who is interacting with their business, the value of those interactions, how to grow one’s Twitter community and how to integrate Twitter with other marketing platforms.

Alana, Nicole and Juliette Feld of Feld Entertainment, the family-owned global entertainment company responsible for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice, MonsterJam and other successful live entertainment properties, will also serve as keynote speakers in a presentation sponsored by Womancon. Their presentation, "Leading a Live Entertainment Empire – A Conversation with the Feld Sisters,” will examine how Feld Entertainment has managed to keep live-entertainment relevant in the face of an increasingly digital world.

“Nicole, Juliette and I are thrilled to be joining forces with Market New York Expo and Womancon to share our experiences as women running a global company,” said Alana Feld. “Every day we learn from working with our father, and with each other, about continually moving our business forward and ensuring that the live entertainment we bring to families around the world stays relevant for our customers. As mothers of daughters we look to continue to set an example as strong women working together toward a common goal of growing our family business.”

In addition to presentations at the Keynote Theater, Market New York will feature more than 38 seminars across nine marketing tracks, including Target Marketing, Paid Online Advertising, Social Media and Digital Sales. Dozens of business and marketing experts will present on such topics as “How to Make Your Blog a Lead Generation Tool" and “Putting Your Money Where It Counts: How to Prioritize Your Digital Spend.” Visit http://www.marketnewyorkexpo.com to view the full schedule.
