    “East Meets West is one of my favorite events of the year, because it brings together leaders from all over the City and County; an event with no county lines. Attending the East Meets West event is a professionally rewarding experience, but BEST of all I love volunteering at the event.  It’s an opportunities to engage in a fun and friendly conversations, reconnect with old friends and make new like-minded friends and contacts from the entire tri county area- LWR, Manatee and Sarasota.  Don’t miss out on this single opportunity to join hundreds of business movers and shakers coming together, who care, share and support one another with providing resources and knowledge.”

    Attorney Bradford Gucciardo and his securities litigation law firm, Gucciardo Law Group, P.A., participated in the 2016 East Meets West Expo for the very first time.  We believed that the Expo would be a small affair, but were pleasantly surprised by the amount of people who attended.  What a great business and personal experience!  Not only did we have a wonderful time; we met so many talented, professional and interesting people.  Our booth had many visitors and we have been retained on several matters as a result of this outstanding networking event.  Gucciardo Law Group will 100% participate in the 2017 East Meets West Expo!

    Our hotel, the Award Winning Comfort Suites Sarasota set up at the booth for people attending the show to "Book at the Show"  hotel rooms at our property!  We offered a "EMW Show Special" for any rooms booked at the tradeshow for September or October.  We did get some bookings that evening.  Thanks EAST MEETS WEST.  We will definitely be back next year!  Laurie Pike, Director of Sales and Marketing.  


    You can share  my testimonial. And I meant every word!  I had direct bookings from the show floor and made much more dollars than the show cost my company.  A win win for sure.
