2022 Conference

Atlanta’s Most Exclusive Business Conference is back!

Small Business Matters Conference 2022  |  May 20  |  City Springs Conference Center




Being a small business operator is tough. Limited time, energy, and resources constantly result in entrepreneurs working in their business rather than on it. More, it never gets easier, no matter how successful your business is.

The Small Business Matters Conference provides an exclusive, TED-like venue for growth-minded small business operators to innovate their business. This Conference was created five years ago with one simple objective: enhance the lives of small business owners by dedicating a day to new ideas, reflection, collaboration, and fun. To achieve this goal, we have partnered with world-class speakers, facilitators, and sponsors. All in the name of Small Business. 

Because of the pandemic, we had to postpone the conference for the past two years. We’re eager to host the event again and look forward to seeing you on May 20, 2022!

The Venue

The 2022 Conference will be held at City Springs Conference Center in Sandy Springs on Friday, May 20 and will feature over 200 of Atlanta’s most-recognized small business leaders. Breakfast and lunch are included in the ticket price.



The Small Business Matters Conference is hosted by Tim Fulton, a nationally recognized small business advocate and consultant. Tim is one of Atlanta’s best-connected small business coaches and is highly respected in the community. He served as an Atlanta leader of Vistage (an international organization for CEOs) and GrowSmart (the leading entrepreneurial training program in Georgia) and is the author of two books Small Business Matters, a 10-year collection of his popular entrepreneurial essays, and Small Business & All That Jazz.

Tim’s vision for the conference is simple, “Exceed the expectations of participants by providing an exceptional experience of growth, connecting, and fun.” With this, the Small Business Matters Conference aims to stimulate your thinking with speaker topics that include:

  • Leadership 
  • Marketing
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Health and Fitness
  • Employee Engagement
  • Business Ethics
