With the rapid expansion of the Hispanic market, the Hispanic Business Expo is the ideal way for Hispanic and non-Hispanic professionals to network and learn about each other's markets. The Hispanic Business Expo, touted as the largest Hispanic showcase in New Jersey, will include business exhibits presented by both Hispanic and non-Hispanic business leaders. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for individuals or groups looking for new and innovative ways to network within various industries. Exhibition fees are $200 for small business and $400 for large business. A $100 discount is also available for exhibitors who refer a friend who exhibits. Exhibitors who refer enough friends to the expo could even exhibit free of charge.

"We are thrilled to be leading the 6th annual Hispanic Business Expo coming up in July," stated Chamber President Lina Llona recently. "We hope the public will come out to help us celebrate Hispanic heritage and this vital contribution to the U.S. economy as a whole. The live music, tasty food and entrepreneurial exhibits promise to be a winning combination!"

The keynote speaker for the Hispanic Business Expo will be Lili Gil Valletta. Valletta is an award-winning entrepreneur, a television contributor, President of the XL Alliance and a member of the World Economic Forum of Young Global Leaders. Valletta will speak from 4p.m. to 5 p.m. on July 20, and the cost for admittance is $30 per person. The expo following this presentation is complimentary to the public.

The Hispanic Business Expo will also be hosting a Latin American Food Festival in conjunction with the business event. Attendees can enjoy authentic food samples from a variety of restaurants. Restaurants may exhibit at the expo free of charge; however, advance registration and a Board of Health license are required. Restaurants must prepare at least 500 samples, and serving utensils are necessary.

While attendees enjoy the tastes and smells of the Latin American Food Festival, they can enjoy traditional Spanish entertainment as well.
