    Presidents messageGreetings!

    For 18 years, you have helped us grow the Androscoggin Business to Business Trade Show to be the best and largest one-day busi-ness event in the state. We recognize that as a business owner, you need an opportunity to display your products to the right customers. In this increasingly brand-heavy world, you need an opportunity for market penetration before you can obtain market domination.

    This year, you can expect to see more than 2,500 business professionals and nearly 165 exhibitors spread across 200 booths taking advantage of this incredible opportunity. If you need diversity in your customer engage-ment, 57 market and industry segments will be in attendance and we will even have a new outdoor venue for exhibitors.

    As the event organizer, we are proud and humbled by the consistently positive feed-back we receive each year from business leaders who consider the show one of the best networking opportunities the state has to offer. Thanks to your feedback, you have allowed us to improve the scope and scale of this event unlike any other in the state.

    As you know, every year the Business to Business Trade Show embraces a new theme. Our theme this year is Building Connections for Business Success, in which we asked exhibitors months ago to tell us how they have built powerful relationships in order to grow their business throughout the years. We invite you to listen to their story and then visit these willing participants at the show.

    As we turn the corner into another year, we understand that every business has had its ups and downs. No matter the variables your business has had to adapt to in this tough economy, what remains constant is:

    You need a cost-effective way to be seen. You need brand familiarity. You need customer engagement. You need visibility.

    As we enter into our 18th year, we invite you to experience why this show has been sold out the last seven years. We are proud that the event remains successful enough that we are able to bring so many business leaders and professionals into one room to meet face to face and shake hands.

    Of course, events like this dont just happen. It takes months of planning and countless hours to bring to you a major event like this. The Business to Business Trade Show remains a premier event throughout the state thanks to the many organizations involved.

    On behalf of the Lewiston-Auburn Economic Growth Council, a special thank you goes out to the Planning Committee, Androscoggin County Chamber of Commerce, city of Lewiston, city of Auburn, staff and countless others.

    Its also no secret that in order to generate publicity, receive quality leads, and draw a high attendance, we rely on our promotion and advertising partners to advocate for us via their media channels. Thank you to our many media partners in print, television, radio and digital who broadcast, far and wide, the posi-tive atmosphere of the event.

    As we look back and reflect upon the previous year, the cities of Lewiston and Auburn have seen an increasing number of investments and projects that are augmenting and redefining our community identity and skyscape. Bordered around our existing groundwork, the community has seen increased growth in downtown expansion while essential infrastructure projects, essential for a growing community, continue to materialize.

    While many parts of America are still battling the ongoing economic crisis, Lewiston and Auburn, by
