What’s unique about the Work at Home Business Expo is that it’s more like a job fair, but instead of looking for new jobs, those who attend can find new opportunities for creating home-based businesses that are matched and suited to their needs, interests and skill-sets.

It a great forum for showcasing business opportunities while at the same time offer a chance for attendees to interact and engage with the exhibitors to learn which business model might be best suited for them.

Are you interested in running a food cart on the side to earn some extra pocket money on the weekend?  Or perhaps you’re looking to set up a printing company in your garage — there will be many opportunities available to explore if you’re looking to get into business for yourself!

From the Show Promoter:

WaHB Expo is a business opportunity and franchise showcase.  What differentiates WaHB Expo from other franchise expo’s is access; specifically, access by the average American family.   At a typical franchise expo you will find business opportunities that require start-up investments of hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars, rendering them unattainable for the average family.  At WaHB Expo the start-up investment for your new business ranges from $50 to $75,000; meaning, that if you can afford to take a date to dinner, or if you can afford to drive an SUV, then you can afford to start your business.  So the real question is, can you afford not to?

The Work at Home Business Expo is the next generation of public event.  It is really a hybrid, bringing the availability of the consumer-show event together with the professional relevance of the trade-show event.

At WaHB Expo we believe that every one, or at least every family, should be business owners.  History has repeatedly demonstrated that no matter your profession or sense of job security, no job is 100% secure.  This latest Great Recession is only the most current reminder.

WaHB Expo is focused on the Work at Home and Home Based Business industry.  It provides a forum that brings together the providers of home based business models and services, with the very people considering a home based business for their own professional future, as well as those with already established home based businesses looking for the resources to grow and support them.

The Work at Home Business Expo is truly an event for the times.  It represents the contributions and expertise of a team of seasoned event industry professionals.  WaHB Expo’s General Manager is Derek A. Romo.  Mr. Romo’s personal and professional experience make him uniquely equipped to produce this event.

In 1988 Mr. Romo received his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Southern California.  In 2003 he received his Masters Degree in Speech Communication from California State University at Fullerton.  He started his first home based business in 1986 with a drafting board, a copy machine, and a phone line.  For the last 20 years his home based business has specialized in event production, management, and services.  Mr. Romo was selected as the 2011 Home-Based Business Champion of the Year by the United States Small Business Administration’s Los Angeles District Office.

“In the last 20 years I have been involved in the production of Horse Shows, Pilots Expos, Health and Fitness Expos, Computer Fairs, Consumer Technology Shows, and even Tattoo Expos, and in all that time I have never seen an event that is more timely and relevant than this one.”  – Derek Romo

The Work at Home Business Expo is an event that is sensitive to the conditions of our current economy, and the needs of an inventive and industrious American work force.  The WaHB Expo team brings a combined trade and consumer show experience of over 60 years. We are uniquely mindful of the concerns of exhibitors and attendees alike and we endeavor to create a show environment that meets the needs and expectations of everyone.
