If you missed the first Small Business Marketing Unleashed event in Columbus and have spent the last month kicking yourself, it's ok! We wouldn't be us if we didn't try to do everything we could to take care of you! So, Jen, Rachel, Robert and Vickie have spent the last three weeks with our nose to the grindstone to line up a second, BONUS edition of Small Business Marketing Unleashed this fall in Columbus, Ohio.

Wondering what you missed from the first time around? Check out our recap video:

The fall show comes around on September 22nd and 23rd and takes place at the Quest Conference Center in Columbus, Ohio. (Find out why in the world we picked Columbus here.)

This time, a few things are different.

1.) We've decided a small show is a good thing, so we've cut the amount of space in HALF. This time, we'll only be accepting 100 attendees. We announced the show this morning on Twitter and six spots have already been snatched up, so don't wait too long to register if you plan on coming.

2.) We've cut the price! It's still $975 for the two day show, but thanks to some of our sponsors re-upping so quickly for round two, we're able to drop the early bird price to $750. That's $100 less than it cost to attend our first show!

3.) We've got new content! We've added two new general sessions and seven new workshops. We've also added two new speakers and will shortly be announcing a great keynote presentation for day two. In other words, even if you came to the first show, there's plenty of new content to keep you busy.

4.) Our charity speed networking event will be a blast this time around. In fact, it was one of the most popular parts of our first show, even for those who aren't particularly social. We'll be renting out COSI, a fantastic science museum here in Columbus for the event and will have a great night of geek toys, food and fun.

5.) If you missed out on the first Unleashed because you've got small children, we understand. That's why we picked a spot for our fall show that gives you access to fantastic child care. In fact, it's where Jen leaves her kids two mornings a week.

For the full skinny on the show, check out the Small Business Marketing Unleashed conference site. There's a ton of new content and information on there and of course you can always drop us an email if you have any questions we haven't covered.

Hope to see you in the fall!
