We promise it will be even better! It’s our 11th Annual JBDC Small Business Expo & Conference. As we embark on this milestone event, the Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC) takes this opportunity to reiterate its commitment to the sustainable and consistent development of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in Jamaica.

We recognize that training is critical to the development and ultimately the success of entrepreneurs. Lack of training could mean that the business will not grow beyond the first stage of enterprise development to other stages and possibly fail within the first five years of existence. This is why the JBDC Small Business Expo & Conference is like no other. Not only will you get a chance to interact with exhibitors, but throughout the day, you will benefit from non-stop sessions delivered by industry experts on subject matters relating to this year’s theme: THE BUSINESS ANATOMY: EXPLORING THE HIDDEN PARTS.


We get it! You’re busy! But, we are proposing that as an entrepreneur, you should take care of your business as you would your body. There are certain parts within that anatomy which are critical to survival and when ignored can lead to disaster. As business developers, it is our duty to ensure that you pay attention to those hidden parts which can make or break your business: The Brain, The Nervous System, The Heart and The Immune System. 

Thank you for being a part of our event. You can view the presentations from the event below.
