AnyMeeting Joins American Express in Supporting Small Business Saturday

Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there is Small Business Saturday.  Started in 2010 by American Express, Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting the local businesses that create jobs, boost the economy and preserve neighborhoods around the country.  The effort helps drive sales to small businesses on one of the busiest holiday shopping weekends of the year.

Along with American Express, Small Business Saturday is supported by a host of advocacy groups, political officials and corporations throughout the country.  This year, AnyMeeting is getting in on the fun and has become a corporate sponsor of Small Business Saturday.

So, help AnyMeeting and American Express support small business on Saturday, November 24th.  For more information on how you and your company can get involved and what opportunities are available for small businesses, click here.
