TREASURE COAST -- The Treasure Coast Business Summit returns to the Port St. Lucie Civic Center on May 3. This is the fifth year the TCBS has been held in Port St. Lucie. It is the single largest event of its kind held on the Treasure Coast.
During the first four years, it is estimated more than 154,000 individuals have been touched by the event. This year an additional 95,000 people will be impacted.
In times of economic uncertainty, it is vital that we remain positive and look for opportunities to be successful. This event is designed to provide valuable educational information, professional resources, economic news and reports and professional motivation to keep business on track and moving forward on the path to success for the entire region.
The TCBS is designed to combine current and relevant real world information and resources with some of the Nation's best motivational speakers. This information will help business owners and managers provide the tools and resources necessary to implement positive change in their business. In addition, attendees will benefit from the relationships that will be forged through the networking opportunities and visiting the business to business vendors who support the event.
The Treasure Coast Business Summit was created by a group of local business owners to help stimulate the economy and job growth by sharing ways to make their companies more profitable, operate efficiently and grow their business strong in a challenging economy.
This event is open to all businesses and was created especially for small to mid-sized business owners/managers and entrepreneurs. The fundamentals of business and economic discussions will cross industry lines and prove to be extremely valuable for all in attendance. In order to survive in the fast-paced world of small business, it's necessary for business owners to come together as a single body, uniting their efforts to better understand and overcome the barriers to success that face us all. It's time to develop a common ground, a powerful network of small business owners in the Treasure Coast who are striving for success in statewide, national and international marketplaces. At the Treasure Coast Business Summit, regional business and community leaders will meet to discuss the issues, obstacles and trends facing entrepreneurs today.
The TCBS continues to be the single largest business to business event of the year on the Treasure Coast and has participation from businesses from as far north as Jacksonville and as far south as Boca Raton. There has also been an increased awareness of local business to business activity helping to stimulate local economic recovery. Based on reports from attendees and participants we have estimated the annual financial impact of the summit is in excess of $200,000 and an unknown number of jobs created each year; however we estimate the total to be approaching 100-110.
