A small business exposition titled Louisiana’s Got Talent is being hosted by the Louisiana chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 20 in the Grand Ballroom of the Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel, 228 Poydras St.

The expo will showcase small businesses from New Orleans and is meant to foster their ties to larger companies.

Dozens of companies on ACG Louisiana’s “Excellent Small Business” list will have tables exhibiting their companies and capabilities.

Simultaneously, some of the region’s industry leaders will engage in speed networking sessions with the businesses. The short, pre-arranged meetings will allow prospective vendors or subcontractors to learn the specific needs, requirements and opportunities for becoming a vendor for the top businesses in the Greater New Orleans area.

The expo part of the event is free and open to the public.

ACG members have free access to the speed networking event and a cocktail reception. Tickets for non-members to those events are $35 and are available on the ACG Louisiana website at www.acg.org/louisiana.
