The GRO-Biz Conference & Idea Expo will feature acclaimed speakers, unique networking opportunities and assistance from several organizations. The event will take place Feb. 20-21 in Casper.

This year’s theme — Expanding Your Market — will feature speakers such as University of Wyoming President Emeritus and Professor Dr. Richard McGinity, nationally recognized marketing expert Melissa Forziat and many others.

·        Legal Updates for Small Businesses

·        Funding Opportunities

·        And much more

Representatives from government agencies looking to partner with Wyoming businesses will be available for one-on-one meetings.
