Expo a must-attend Thursday

Published 9:56 am Wednesday, November 14, 2012

The Franklin-Southampton Area Chamber of Commerce from 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, will host its 19th annual Community Business Expo at the Paul D. Camp Community College Regional Workforce Development Center.

The event is free.

Every year the Expo gets a little bit bigger and better, and with over 50 vendors under one roof this year, there’s bound to be something to interest everyone who attends.

Guests can visit several interactive booths, ranging from free health screenings to food vendors and everything in between. There will be door prizes for guests and prizes awarded to vendors for the creativity of their booth designs.

But best of all, it is an opportunity for the local business community to really shine in front of several hundred attendees.

The Chamber is a tireless advocate for our local small businesses, and the Community Business Expo is the biggest event it puts on all year.

The Tidewater News is proud to participate in this event each year and looks forward to seeing many of our friends and customers at this year’s Expo.
