Colorado Entrepreneurship MarketPlace @ CMC in Steamboat Springs, Bristol 128
Oct 24 @ 8:15 am – 4:15 pm

Business owners and those who want to start their own business have the opportunity to hear nationally-known “Destination Business Expert” Jon Schallert when he comes to the 2014 Colorado Entrepreneurship MarketPlace, “Workshops for Business Success” in Steamboat Springs on October 24th.

Schallert teaches independent business owners how to turn their businesses into consumer “Destinations” that attract customers from many milesaway, past other competitive outlets. Schallert also shows businesses how to get local consumers to spend more money locally, and how to stop “retail leakage”. Schallert’s consulting firm, The Schallert Group, Inc., is noted for providing competitive tools to independent business owners that are typically used exclusively by large corporate chains to dominate a marketplace.

Event held in the Bristol Hall gymnasium, first floor, room BR 128.
