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

Their passion for small business can be seen in the 140+ workshops that overflow into the hallways, and in the exhibit hall where they eagerly mingle 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 is “Exchange & Experience.”
