Business owners in Ohio can use the state's growing business community to their advantage when pursuing new resources and expanding. This August brings a new conference to the Buckeye State, in the form of the Ohio Municipalities Business Conference & Expo in Columbus. According to the description on the official City of Columbus website, this is the first event, with 1,000 expected attendees, although it is based off of a previous event centered around the mayor.
According to this source, the "early bird" registration period continues until July 12 and offers possible attendees a chance to register at a slightly lower fee. Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther will host the event at the Greater Columbus Convention Center over the course of two days, August 2 and 3. The event will also specifically address minority and women-owned businesses, and include workshops on topics such as business uncertainty and amassing enough funding to grow.

"Columbus is happy to be the host for this first-of-its kind event."
