Join us for 12th Annual Ocean State Business Expo & Networking Event of making connections, collaboration, and networking in a face-to-face atmosphere with over 100 of the best of Rhode Island’s local business professionals. Choose from a wide variety of exhibits for products and services to learn what's available to benefit your business.


Where invaluable lasting connections are made. 

The Ocean State Business Expo was created by Jay White of Uncle Jay’s Networking and held the first annual in September 2009. Susan Lataille, owner of DiscoverYou Events became a partner in 2011. In 2019 Rick Lataille from WRIK Entertainment became a partner assisting Susan with the production. 


The focus is on the local business community looking for the opportunity to meet other local professionals to connect, build relationships and exchange ideas whether they participate as an exhibitor or attendee.


Business is always built on lasting relationships. Meeting in a face-to-face atmosphere has proven to cut down on the marketing time. People know instantly whether or not there’s a connection.
