“Our SCORE chapter is proud to offer this symposium for local businesses each year and it is a large part of our core mission to help build business in our community,” said Jay Gladney, Greater Phoenix SCORE Chapter President. “In addition to a terrific event for our attendees, it is also a great event for our sponsors and vendors. We couldn’t do it without their support. I’d especially like to thank our premier sponsor – Sam’s Club.”

More than 500 people from a wide-range of industries attended last year’s symposium. “We are happy to see that business start-ups and established business alike see value in the content we present each year,” says Patrick Ingram, symposium chairman. “We expect an even bigger turn-out this year.”

The chapter is also offering local business the ability to showcase their offerings by becoming a sponsor or exhibiting at the event. Sponsorship and exhibiting packages are priced to fit most businesses’ marketing budget. To learn more, register as an attendee or become a sponsor visit
