Hartford will be among the cities participating in the nation’s largest business-to-business trade show, networking, and conference event, with a virtual meeting scheduled for next month.

The Small Business Expo will host a regional show for businesses in the Hartford region from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 11. The event is free to attend, and businesses can also purchase exhibition space.

The event will include seminars and workshops led by industry experts, vendors, and speed networking opportunities. It is one of 45 shows taking place this year.

The Small Business Expo had been held in 15 major American cities and streamed live for nearly 13 years, but introduced its first virtual expo in June 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will continue holding multiple local, regional, and national virtual events for its members each year.

Live shows are slated to return in August, including one set for Oct. 27 in Boston.

This year also marks the debut of the Small Business Expo Grant, which is sponsored by Microsoft. The $5,000 grant will be given to a business chosen from among the attendees of a national virtual show on March 25.
