BACP Small Business Expos

The Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection (BACP) hosts a series of free Small Business Expos.  The expos provide business owners and entrepreneurs a forum to get expert advice, connect with industry experts and government agencies, learn new business strategies, meet other business owners and attend an inspiring keynote address. The expo is part of the City’s effort to support neighborhood businesses and economic development by leveraging local business support resources.

We look forward to hosting the Small Business Expo series in 2023!  Please check back for dates.
