Join us on October 18th for our 4th annual LGBT business expo! This event is FREE for anyone who RSVP’s on the CABO website – www.thecabo.org.
Each October CABO members come together to show off their products, services and their commitment to the LGBT community. Are you looking for a place to get insurance? Need a lawyer? How about a realtor? Need someone to design that website you’ve been putting off for months? This is the time where you can meet everyone in one spot.
This year in addition to the business expo we are presenting awards to the three stellar individuals. We have awards honoring a Corporate Leader, Business Pioneer and Community Champion. These awards recognize 3 leaders working towards LGBT equality in their own respective ways. Join us on October 18th as we celebrate their accomplishments and present them with the recognition they deserve.
The expo will go from 6p-9p at the Inn at Middletown located at 70 Main Street, Middletown, CT. The presentation part of the event will start around 7:30p. Appetizers will be provided and a cash bar is available.
Our 2012 printed member directory will also be available to pick up as well. We consider our directory to be the Connecticut LGBT buying guide. Regardless of what you need to buy or who you are looking to do business with, consult our directory first. We have several other states represented as well, not just CT for those of you outside of CT reading this.
CABO is able to provide services to its member in large part due to our corporate partnerships, which include; Aetna, Foxwoods, Murtha Cullina LLP, Comcast Business Class, Bearingstar Insurance, Nutmeg State Federal Credit Union, Clear Channel Radio and The Rainbow Times. Each of these businesses has something great to offer and their commitment and support to the LGBT community is what separates them from the rest. We highly encourage you to do business with one or all of them.
