Business is Booming East-Polk County and the Latin Business Expo will celebrate with a networking showcase and business gathering festival on Nov. 4 at the Lake Eva Event Center, 799 Johns Ave., in Haines City.
The expo will focus on valuable Latino-owned businesses throughout the Central Florida region. The event is open to all entrepreneurs and individuals seeking networking, business development resources, and invaluable information.
Featured happenings include vendors, workshops, a luncheon, and an afterhours social with special entertainment, guest speakers, and VIPs throughout the day. Vendor Hall will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Every aspect of this day has been planned to provide extensive resources, valuable networking, and business solutions that are practical for participants.
Workshops will be on-point and current for the needs of today’s business owner. Workshops will include Marketing in Today’s New Norm, Building A Business Plan that Works for You, Small Business Grants & Creative Funding Resources, and Small Business Financial Wellness. A special focus and mindfulness workshop will be provided by Dr. Yarissa Bonet, founder and owner of Fibrofit Wellness & Yoga.
The luncheon will feature a saucy and festive menu provided by local Latin restaurants, with Polk County Commissioner, Martha Santiago, as the keynote speaker. Other speakers will include Polk County Sheriff, Grady Judd, and Polk State President, Dr. Angela Garcia Falconetti. The afterhours social will feel less like networking and more like festive gathering with entertainment and refreshments that celebrate the Latin community.
