Selling on the Spot Marketplace – Ajax

January 10 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Calling all Entrepreneurs, Business Owners and Sales Professionals!

Ready for a fun, exciting and productive event? What is Selling on the Spot Marketplace? It is Networking, Sales Training, real Selling of any products or services on the spot, and more!

Imagine taking your current presentation or elevator speech, and applying it to selling by building rapport first, ethical influence, and asking for the sale, on the spot during the marketplace.

Whether you have a product or a service, this is the place to SELL, NETWORK, BUILD your list, LEARN and EARN, MAKE NEW FRIENDS, and HAVE FUN!

This isn’t just a networking event, don’t just bring business cards, but bring your Book if you are an Author, your Flyer if you are promoting an event, your best selling Products if a product driven company, your Gift Certificates or similar if promoting a Service, whatever makes sense for your business, or whatever you most want to find customers and clients for at this time.

Event Schedule:

10:00 am Registration and Networking
10:30 am Sales Training / Setting up the Event
11:00 am Marketplace
12:40 pm Door Prizes and Closing

For some industries, a “sale” might be that you booked a follow up appointment, consultation or coffee meeting on the spot! So even your follow up is completed while at the event.

DOOR PRIZES are welcome and recommended for more exposure for your business.


TICKETS are also available at the door, for $40.
Exact change please.

Coffee, tea, water and munchies are included.
