Purch's business-to-small-business (B2SMB) summit will take place in Chicago on October 3 and 4, 2017. This first-of-its-kind event is produced by bizHive and hosted by Purch brand/Business News Daily sister site Business.com, a content and commerce platform that connects small business owners with experts who can help them grow their business.

The B2SMB Summit focuses exclusively on the $500 billion B2SMB marketplace, and will include more than seven hours of programming. B2SMB enterprise leaders and market innovators will discuss innovative marketing technology, SMB research and new ways to reach and engage with small businesses across the United States. Industry experts will give keynote presentations and participate in onstage discussions.

"B2SMB pros collectively represent an enormous volume of SMB customers and billions of dollars in revenue, yet most industry events we attend dismiss the SMB customer base as unscalable," Aaron Bailey, senior vice president and general manager of Business.com, said in a statement. "This event is designed to share new expertise, new insights and new advice from the B2SMB industry's top leaders — a great opportunity to focus on best practices, develop winning strategies and find new partners."   

Attendees can anticipate networking with the largest gathering of B2SMB leaders in the United States. Marketing and sales leaders will be in attendance, as well as c-suite leaders, product developers, brand managers and investors. There will be a networking breakfast, peer dinner groups, a cocktail reception and several networking breaks to provide attendees with the opportunities they need to make valuable connections in the industry.

All tickets include cocktails, a continental breakfast and buffet lunch, as well as the summit sessions, exhibits and videos. A 20 percent discount is available during the summer sale, which lasts until August 31, 2017. Pre-event tickets, which are offered at a 13 percent discount, are available until September 30, and general admission tickets can be purchased until the last day of the event, October 4.
