In its 23rd year, this fun and free marketplace is open to everyone! Come experience the best of the regional business community–and tasty small bites, refreshing libations and SWAG too! The event promotes community businesses and nonprofit organizations in an effort to strengthen the regional economy and encourage consumers to buy locally.
MBEP is hosting our third annual State of the Region conference at the Hyatt Regency Monterey on November 8, 2017. This year our theme is “Let’s Get Moving!” which will explore how to break through inertia to get things done, and also more literally showcase ways to improve how people move around our region.
In addition to a featured talk or tech demonstration we will have pitches from great new startups (contact us if you would like to pitch your idea or business), news about startups in the region, music, fun,and games. This month we’ll also be doing a website design exercise.
Special thanks to our event sponsors: The Monterey Incubator, Management Analytics/Angel2Exit/Keiretsu Forum; The iiED/CSUMB College of Business; The Fort Ord Reuse Authority.
