The 39th Annual America’s SBDC Conference took place September 3-6, 2019, in Long Beach, California, at the Long Beach Convention Center. The conference attracted 1,300+ SBDC professionals from all over the nation. These advisors, trainers and directors came together for professional development and networking.

Their passion for small business could be seen in the 140+ workshops that overflowed into the hallways, and in the exhibit hall where they eagerly mingled with each other and the tradeshow exhibitors, seeking the latest information on products and services that can ensure the success of their small business clients. The theme of this year’s conference was “Exchange & Experience.”
