#SMATB is a local event for the Virginia Beach are for the people by the people. We are not your typical large corporate company trying to get you as another client or charge you an arm & a leg just to get in.

We are opening this to the public as a grass roots type of movement where we are avoiding corporate exposure and running this by a team who will all contribute by presenting and organizing the event.
