2016 Small Business Fair

The 2016 Summer Hawaii Small Business Fair, sponsored by DBEDT, was successfully held at Honolulu Community College, Saturday, August 6, 2016. Over 250 attendees pre-registered for 18 classes by business experts, ranging from business planning to developing marketing plans with Census data, to leveraging social media for promotion. The registration showed a continuing trend where attendees were split 50/50 between currently owning a business and seeking resources to create a new company.

There was a high number of walk-in attendees, leading to several popular classes having standing attendees. Presentations for select classes are provided via links in the class schedule.

The Planning Committee: Honolulu Community College, DBEDT, Leeward Community College, Small Business Development Center (SBDC), DCCA Business Action Center, and Internal Revenue Service.
