For the last several years, a revolution has been underway in small business banking, fueled by an enhanced ability to use credit data, a drive to change the same-old-same-old status quo in this lucrative market and a hot marketing hook in "free checking." In some ways, bankers have figured out how to successfully revise their operational and marketing models. But in other ways, question marks remain.

That is why we are proud to present the 2006 SMALL BUSINESS BANKING SUMMIT, to help you forge a path to greater success.

Dates: March 20-22, 2006
Location: Orlando, FL
Hotel: Rosen Plaza Hotel
Price: $1195

Presented by Small Business Banking News.

The Small Business Banking Summit will give you a unique perspective on what is working now in small business banking enabling you to set a smart course of action for your bank. Not only will you get an idea for which way the economy is going but you will also get ideas for refining your sales efforts, improving your product development techniques and refining your sector-specific risk management. You don't want to miss it.
