Indiana Small Business Expo has been involved with the community since 2008 and we will continue the servitude and with the professionalism that our members, sponsors, vendors and visitors deserve. Your trusted support and the return on investment are the driving factors for our policies. Thank you to all of the Indiana small business owners that makes each event a success.
Indiana Small Business Expo, and in an effort to provide a diverse lineup of exhibitors, show management reserves the right to limit similar product offerings and services. Management also reserves the right to deny the application of companies whose products are not in keeping with the event’s healthy business environment.
Professional conduct is expected at each event. The members of the Indiana Small Business Expo Network strive to present themselves as they would do so during a business meeting or a business conference. We all are representing small business as a whole, we all want our clients and customers to return.
Each participant has their own policies in place within their business and it is common ground and common expectation to receive and to display business professionalism. Example: If a patron in a local establishment is unruly and infringes upon the quiet enjoyment of other patrons, the common practice is to remove the patron. Indiana Small Business Expo Network will terminate any and all members or visitors that are not engaging inside professional behavior.
Over consumption of alcohol at any event hosted by Indiana Small Business Expo, will cause for your dismissal and you will not be invited back to participate with any event. Under the influence of any mood-altering influence of any kind will cause for immediate termination.
The presence of drug consumption or odor of recent drug consumption is not allowed. If unprofessional behavior is displayed, refunds could take place immediately and your application or agreements to participate will be terminated.
The networking events are created to offer an atmosphere of professionalism that will foster and enhance business relationships and business referrals. These events should be treated with the proper attire as well as appropriate behavior that would be acceptable within the business arena, much like corporate America policies.
Indiana Small Business Expo Network promotes and invites diversity and other networking groups and organizations to participate. Each business will need to complete an application for approval, some events are industry exclusive.
Please note that venue contracts do not allow food or dessert vendors. Some exhibitors may need approval for certain products from the venue itself. Additional legislative documents may be required in order to participate. Additional contracts may be required to ensure laws are complied with.
All vendors, exhibitors and members are required to keep active liability insurance, county appropriate vendor permits, retail licenses and any other applicable professional licenses regarding your specific product or services.
