For the third year, The Small Business Web is hosting its annual Summit this February 20-21 in San Jose, CA at the eBay Townhall. This is a private retreat for the partnership, integration, marketing, and executives of cloud companies selling to small businesses. We started and continue to run this event to let our members network, make deals, and learn from each other.
The Summit lasts 2 days. It's a mix of informal sessions, keynotes, networking, and--arguably most importantly--cocktail hours. Breakfast and lunch are provided both Thursday and Friday, and there is our traditional dinner (with open bar!) Thursday night at the M8trix Casino.
