The annual Boone Business Expo will return to the High Country on Thursday, and this year’s event will be bigger and better than ever before!
Hosted at the Boone Mall, the expo is made possible by the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce.
More than 75 local businesses will be represented by an owner or employee, who will set up shop for the day to answer all of your questions and tell you about what they do.
Open to the general public, the expo provides a great chance for folks to meet the faces behind the area’s business community.
“It’s an opportunity to find reliable businesses and chamber members they can depend on to do business with,” said Wysteria White, membership services manager for the chamber. “You can also learn about what businesses are out there and make connections with reliable resources.”
It’s also an excellent business-to-business networking opportunity for local entrepreneurs and leaders.
“This is the time for our members to show, to tell and to sell their products, who they are and what they do. Case in point, we had a member last year who made a huge deal with somebody right there at his table who didn’t know about the services he offered until then,” said Barbara Armstrong, the chamber’s director of operations. “That’s just one of the great stories we’ve heard back from our members. The expo is about getting your face and name out there and keeping firm existing relationships, but it’s also about making new ones.
“Not only are the chamber members and business owners networking with people in the community, but they’re networking with each other.”
Get to know these local businesses while you enjoy food from local restaurants, peruse a wide variety of products and services and make new friends at this free expo from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday. You might even win an awesome prize!
If you’re a business owner, put your best food forward and sign up today to reserve a booth for the expo.
