Go-Getter Companies Making Sure to Get in on Bixpo

Exhibitor booths at Sept. Bixpo nearly sold out in mid-July

LOVELAND, CO (PRWEB) July 22, 2005

Bixpo officials said they project now-open spots among the over 200 booths that will be part of BixpoÂ’s 2005 exhibit will sell out months before the September event.

These booths, purchased by Colorado and Wyoming companies, will offer Bixpo attendees an array of businesses to explore at The Ranch in Loveland, Colo., Sept. 14 and 15.

“We expected a strong response from the small sector of opportunists companies early in the game,” Alan Lipps said, CFO of Buzz Events, the company that is putting on Bixpo along with the Northern Colorado Business Report. “But we never expected booths to go this quickly.”

Lipps said over half of BixpoÂ’s 209 exhibitor booths have been purchased by companies wanting to have a presence at the event, which will be held in the First National Bank Exhibition Hall. To be exact, 143 booths have been reserved as of July 20.

“That just goes to show you the go-getter mentality of our area businesses,” Lipps said. “They know a great opportunity when they see one and they’re not gonna waist any time getting in on it.”

The exhibit is expected to bring in thousands of businesspeople from Colorado and Wyoming wanting to network with and learn from their peers in the industry.

Those who attend Bixpo will also have opportunities to learn from the eventÂ’s other activities, including a star-studded speaker series, Northern Colorado Summit, featuring a panel discussion led by industry experts, the IQ Awards honoring Colorado businesses, and much more.

The Speaker Series, also held Sept. 14 and 15 at the Budweiser Events Center, features keynotes Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani as well as Debbi Fields, of Mrs. Fields Cookies, Robert Ginnett, Senior Fellow of the Center for Creative Leadership, Gary Hoover of bookstop and hoovers. com, best-selling author Seth Godin, and Ann Rhoades, former Vice President of JetBlue and President of People Ink.

Bixpo officials say they expect Speaker Series tickets to sell out as well.
