CenPhoCamp is back again to help greater downtown Phoenix business owners, their customers and residents succeed in the new economy. The free event will run from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9, at the Cronkite School, located at 555 N. Central Ave. on the Arizona State University downtown campus.

The conference will feature 12 35-minute sessions designed to teach small business owners and the like how to better use the resources they may not know they have access to.

The volunteer-run workshop is comprised of local practitioners willing to show others exactly how to do what they do. Kirk Yuhnke of ABC15 will discuss how to make your business story worthy, Gary Campbell will present on how working with universities can help your bottom line and pundit-turned-marketer Kevin Spidel will show how branding is the new customer loyalty program. These three, along with nine other hand-picked presenters, will highlight the afternoon workshop.

Food will be provided by the attendees themselves, as conference organizers hope to create a community learning forum rather than a lecture environment.

An after-party will follow the conference from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at District Kitchen, 320 N. Third St.
