The Progressive Intercultural Community Services (PICS) Society is hosting the “B.C. Small Business Expo 2014” on Sept. 20 at Surrey City Hall, 13450 104 Ave. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In its inaugural year, the annual event will allow small businesses to display their products and services to the public as well as other businesses.

The fair will host various small businesses that span across British Columbia, as well as keynote addresses by business leaders. The collection of businesses will provide opportunities for entrepreneurs to network with other businesses so as to increase their company profile and visibility.

“It is important for small businesses to network and create relationships with each other. Expanding your contacts can open new doors for opportunities in business,” says Satbir Cheema, director of employment programs and planning for PICS.

“This is an opportunity for small businesses to be noticed by the public, and increase awareness for themselves.”

For potential exhibitors, booths are available to rent for an early bird rate of $250 (until Aug. 15) and $350 after the early bird deadline.
