PlanetMagpie Corners Small Business IT at the Small Business Expo

PlanetMagpie had a booth and a workshop at the 2016 Small Business Expo. Part of our constant outreach to local small businesses. Thanks to everyone who stopped by!
On Thursday, September 15, PlanetMagpie took part in the 2016 Small Business Expo at the Cow Palace.

Thousands of Business Professionals in One Place

An estimated 10,000 people came to the Expo.  People curious to learn more about running their businesses, ways to grow their audience, and find out about new solutions they may not have considered.

PlanetMagpie team members spoke with people from all types of businesses—from one-woman operations to international distributors.  Many other vendors exhibited alongside us—CoverHound, VistaPrint, Sennheiser, RedVue, USPS, and more.


The PlanetMagpie booth stood prominently in a corner next to several workshop rooms, where experts presented on topics from forming a business to growing one.

PlanetMagpie Founder and President Robert Douglas conducted a workshop for attendees titled, “Become an IT Superhero!”  You can download the workshop slides here:  PlanetMagpie’s Small Business Expo 2016 Page.
