The Santa Barbara Business Expo takes place Saturday, April 25, 9 AM to 2 PM. Think of the Author Showcase as a mini book and author festival inside a bigger expo at the Fess Parker resort by the beach. Authors and publishers can sell their books as well as interact with potential readers. Those who wish to give a five minute pitch on the main stage may request that in advance. Exhibitors may place free standing displays behind their tables. Event planners expect more than 1,000 attendees this year. A three foot square table costs $250, this includes 10 admission tickets, valued at $25 each, which exhibitors can sell or give away. A larger six foot long table costs $595 and includes one VIP ticket ($150 value) and 15 general admission tickets. Proceeds from the 2015 SBBE benefit TVSB, Santa Barbara’s public media network.
