TCBS Weeks Away

The largest business-to-business event on the Treasure Coast will be held on Friday, May 15 at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center. This is the 7th year of the event and the theme is the BUSINESS of Healthcare.

The Treasure Coast Business Summit (TCBS) was created in 2009 by a small group of business owners with the goal of creating a stimulus for the local economy. The idea was to bring business owners and managers together to share ways to make their companies more profitable, operate efficiently and grow their businesses in a challenging economy.

The TCBS is designed to provide valuable educational information, professional resources, economic news and reports and professional motivation to keep business on track and moving forward. This unique combination of information will help business owners and entrepreneurs identify their inner strengths and provide the tools and resources necessary to implement positive change in their business. In addition to the comprehensive agenda of speakers, attendees will benefit from the relationships that will be forged through the networking opportunities and visiting the business-to-business vendors who participate in the event.

This Summit is open to all business types and was created especially for small to mid-sized business owners / managers and entrepreneurs. The fundamentals of business and economic discussions will cross industry lines and prove to be extremely valuable for all in attendance. At the Treasure Coast Business Summit, regional business and community leaders will meet to discuss the issues, obstacles and trends facing entrepreneurs today.

“This year’s topic – the BUSINESS of Healthcare is an important topic that affects all of us,” stated Douglas Farrell, a founding partner. “We’ve got a great lineup of speakers that will be both informative and educational.”

The agenda includes a panel discussion on the BUSINESS of Healthcare featuring leading healthcare professionals. It will include an economic update on the area and a session on leadership. In addition there will be over 140 business vendors and virtually every media outlet that serves this area. The TCBS is being held at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center on US1 and Walton road.
