Taking place Jan. 15, 2015, at Miami Beach Convention Center is Small Business Expo, the largest B2B networking event and conference in the U.S.
It was designed to be equal parts business tradeshow, conference and networking event and brings together thousands of like-minded entrepreneurs, C-Level execs, business owners and other business professionals from around the country.
Small Business Expo routinely features 20 or more workshops conducted by industry experts and includes open forum discussions on topics, such as social media, business planning, tax and legal advice, creating mobile apps, email marketing and more designed for small business owners and other business professionals to learn and grow their business.
The “Shark Tank” open casting call will give attendees the opportunity to complete a one-minute pitch of their idea, product or business to a member of the ABC TV show’s official casting team. The format of the one-minute pitch is nearly identical to those commonly seen on the show each week. All casting calls are open to the general public and do not require the purchase of a credential.
The official casting call for “Shark Tank” will take place during the Small Business Expo in Hall C of the Miami Beach Convention Center. Numbered wristbands, which will determine the order that attendees will be pitching in, will be distributed on the property from 9:00-11:00 a.m. The interviews will begin at 10:00 a.m. sharp and will continue all day until 5 p.m. Attendees should be prepared to “wow and dazzle” the casting team.
To apply for the “Shark Tank” open casting call, all attendees must have completed the official Application Packet. The Application Packet can be downloaded from the show’s official website and must be completed when bringing it to the event (a limited amount of additional packets will be available on site as well). The Application Packet contains a wide variety of detailed questions about the business, product, brand or idea, so it is advised to have it completed well in advance of the actual event.
