Cardinal Trade Group, Inc. (CTG), the producer of the New York region’s top business events, brings to today’s business professionals an even larger Trade Brooklyn, the region’s leading B2B trade show, to the heart of Brooklyn at the New York Marriott at Brooklyn Bridge, 333 Adams St. on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Capitalizing on the continuing economic and business boom that has been happening in Brooklyn over the last decade at time at a time when studies are showing a national decline in American entrepreneurship, this year’s Trade Brooklyn is focused on turning this year into the “Year of the Entrepreneur,” recapturing people’s entrepreneur spirit through a series of comprehensive seminars that are designed to inspire, motivate and support entrepreneur leaders of both today and tomorrow.

Expanded to meet the explosive business rebirth occurring across the boroughs, this year’s show is expected to draw over 2,500 business professionals with over 150 business exhibitors from Brooklyn and the greater metropolitan area.

With business still “hot” in Brooklyn, this popular trade show fuels business growth and vitality by bringing together growth focused business people and companies from Brooklyn and the greater New York metropolitan area. National corporations, local entrepreneurs, non-profits, government agencies, business advocacy groups and the media will all take part in the show. Businesses will showcase new products, services and cost-saving solutions to support expansion and new business development.

Seventeen top-notch business seminars led by local and national business experts will provide strategies for business growth, productivity and efficiency. The seminars will be:

“Trade Brooklyn will attract a record number of attendees. It’s our goal to connect like-minded businesspeople and broaden their prospects for success in the marketplace. Moving the show to Marriott means more space for more exhibitors, new and energizing activities and programs as well a better networking environment. These efforts will create opportunities and boost business in Brooklyn and across the region,” said Jonathan Levin, founder of Trade Brooklyn.
