Catering by Olde Tymes
Answer: The overall quality of the program
Explanation: There are so many great conventions and conferences happening around the world today. To really find the best fit, I look at the overall quality and ROI for our company. What will the team get out of it? Who is presenting? How can we better our business and/or ourselves by attending? Will there be something educational, new trends or ideas we can use to assist with our growth? Or something new we can share with our clients? Will there be an opportunity for us to meet like minded professionals or possible clients? Is there a platform for us to present our expertise on as well. There are so many variables if finding the best overall quality convention or conference to attend. These are just a few that come to mind.

Answer: The opportunity to network with other professionals in your field
Explanation: Of course I attend conventions to learn more about being a small business owner as well as gaining expertise from the keynote speakers, however, I feel like the best way to network your business is one on one interaction between business owners and consumers. Therefore, I am always looking for an opportunity to have a conversation with other entrepreneurs about their experiences and me to share mines as well. Sharing contacts and referrals are also very effective ways to gain much needed exposure for all small businesses.
