Event hosted by student Entrepreneur Club/DECA Affiliate (E-Club)
The annual Small Business Expo and Marketplace brings together local West Valley businesses, employee business owners, and EMCC students to showcase and sell their respective goods and services.
Time/Date: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 20, 2016
Location: Estrella Conference Center and Outdoor Plaza on the EMCC campus at 3000 N. Dysart Rd., in Avondale, Ariz.
The event offers an opportunity for attendees and vendors to gather on the scenic EMCC campus to see the diversity in area businesses, make new connections, and foster consumer-to-business and business-to-business relationships that help strengthen the community.
The value the Expo provides to EMCC’s presenting student organizations is extensive. The goal of the school’s E-Club is to help students develop crucial business skills, and to learn relationship development and community-building abilities to utilize on a pathway to success. This event puts them in direct contact with these business-minded community leaders to learn these practical skills and to set the foundation for beneficial unions.
Additionally, funds raised at the Small Business Expo and Marketplace will help fund the club operations and help with the costs of qualifying students to attend the annual DECA National Competition, which is held in major U.S. cities. The 2016 event will take place in Washington, D.C.
