									About the Convention for the website:

The seventh-annual Small Business Convention (SBC) is the premier small business event in the
country. This two-day experience is packed with 48 educational workshops, six national keynote
speakers, a business-to-business tradeshow and unique networking opportunities.

The 2012 SBC will take place at the Kalahari Convention Center, a location that provides
attendees with the retreat they need to take a step back to work ON their business instead of IN
it. The Center is Ohio’s largest convention facility and features state-of-the-art amenities and
more than 200,000 square feet of meeting space. The move to Kalahari also makes it easier for
small business owners from areas such as Detroit, Toledo and Columbus to attend… meaning
you’ll meet even more people who you can connect with and learn from.
