AIBA’s LocalBIZtoBIZ program brings business in your door and builds a healthy local economy by facilitating, encouraging and supporting local businesses to purchase goods and services from other local businesses.
• Vendor Connection—Let AIBA help you find great local vendors for all your businesses’ needs.
• LocalBIZtoBIZ Connection—Watch for our LocalBIZtoBIZ Happy Hours where you can find local vendors in a relaxed atmosphere and get to know them.
• LocalBIZtoBIZ Expo—Join us in October when the LocalBIZtoBIZ Expo premiers. The expo delivers vendors for everything you need to run your business in one convenient place plus 15 minute QuickTake presentations on a wide variety of subjects from our vendors. But it’s not all business. We’ll have fun too with music, a happy hour cash bar and lots of door prizes.
• Take the LocalBIZtoBIZ Challenge—We challenge all local companies to shift their vendors to locally owned companies whenever possible. We know you can’t always buy everything locally but many services such as accounting, printing, office supplies and more can be purchased from a local company. If every local business shifts three vendors to local, we all prosper!
Shifting to local companies for business needs, builds Austin’s local economy through direct purchase as well as recirculating revenue. Take the BIZtoBIZ Challenge and keep your money in Austin.
