FRANKLIN, Wis. - Nov. 1, 2016 - PRLog -- A huge Nov. 5 event at the Milwaukee County Sports Complex in Franklin will offer local businesses an innovative approach to find new customers, save cash, and purchase goods and services they need, via a new form of currency based on the world's oldest economic system.

The International Monetary Systems (IMS) Holiday Trade Expo, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., will feature more than 200 exhibitors offering business equipment, travel, clothing, jewelry, food, electronics, collectibles and much more. All will be sold through the IMS Barter network, using "trade dollars" attendees have earned doing business in the network. More than $1 million in sales are expected at the sports complex, 6000 W. Ryan Road.

Representatives from businesses of all sizes and market segments are invited to attend the Expo, and learn how barter – in the form of trade dollars - can benefit their companies. IMS member businesses earn trade dollars just like cash, and use the currency to pay for everyday expenses such as professional services, travel, advertising, corporate gifts, office equipment, printing and more.

Admission is free. Accounts can be opened day of the event, including credit lines to make purchases. The Holiday Trade Expo demonstrates how IMS Barter ( offers businesses an opportunity to boost sales, save cash, and gain tremendous marketing exposure at zero cost.

Here's how the IMS Barter network, which has more than 16,000 businesses nationwide, works:

1.          Member businesses sell goods or services to other IMS members (, and are paid in trade dollars deposited into their accounts.

2.          These companies use their trade dollars to purchase needed goods and services from other IMS members ( (thus saving cash for other needs). If excess inventory is an issue, the IMS marketplace offers an ideal venue to sell it for tangible, valuable resources.

3.          IMS member businesses save money on marketing, because customers find them. Members regularly make the IMS network their first option to identify, and buy from, vendors.

IMS, headquartered in New Berlin, Wis., is the nation's largest trading network and offers a viable, practical alternative for businesses to obtain much-needed products and services. The company has 20 offices in the U.S. and Canada, and transacts more than $225 million in total trade volume annually.
