Lyons, NE - For the third year in a row the Center for Rural Affairs will host, Marketplace: Opening Doors to Success, which will focus on building jobs and the rural economy from within. This year, along with similar sessions from last year, the conference will feature several teach-ins in Spanish. These sessions will include topics such as marketing strategies, business start-up, and using the internet as a marketing tool. The conference will be held on Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at the Sandhills Convention Center in North Platte, Nebraska.
"MarketPlace Hispanic Track is an effort to bring resources and support to Hispanic business owners which play an important role in Nebraska's economic development," commented Adriana Dungan, Center for Rural Affairs, REAP Business Specialist and Hispanic Business Center Director.
