More than 1,000 people attended the Northwest Arkansas Business Conference and Expo at the John Q. Hammon's Center.
The event is a great opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs in the area, and guest speakers were chosen to share new ways to do business with the owners.
"Its all about people hearing messages they normally wouldn't," says Brad Phillips, the vice president of marketing communications for the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce. "Small to medium businesses are busy they don't have time to get out."
185 vendors also set up shop at the conference, hoping to find new customers at the event, which has now sold out two years in a row.
