The Economic Development and Government Relations Division of the Lebanon-Wilson Chamber of Commerce will showcase local businesses this Thursday during the 2013 Business Expo.
The event, which will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Lebanon Premium Outlets Food Court, was attended by 450 people in 2012 and Chamber CEO Sue Vanatta hopes to top that number this year. It was so successful last year. It gives the Chamber a way to show off our businesses and also let them network with each other, she said. We found out last year that many people didnt know what businesses are out there.
Thirty-five local businesses are signed up to participate in the event and the cutoff to register your company is Thursday morning. Vanatta said that interested businesses are invited to call the Chamber at 444-5503 if they wish to be a part of the event.
The booth rental fee is $25, which will be used to offset event costs of decorations, advertising and marketing.
It is free to attend the event. This is just a way to benefit our chamber members and also to let them see what is at the Lebanon Premium Outlets at the same time, Vanatta said.
