River Valley Business Expo
Manufacturing, retail, hotels, utilities, and marketing firms are just some of the industries present at the 16th Annual River Valley Business Expo. We are excited to announce a new date change, and with that date being at the beginning of the summer and our 2019 theme: Live Like You’re on Vacation, we hope to showcase summer activities in the River Valley. The Expo Fashion Show will get you ready for beautiful summer weather highlighting current trends. Exhibitors and staff are invited to attend business-focused breakout sessions and educational seminars taking place during set up hours. Looking to do some business-to-business networking before the big day? The Expo Preview Party offers participants and guests the opportunity to get a firsthand look at the booths, vote on best booth, meet with new and old friends, and partake in some really great food from area restaurants. The following morning, join the Chamber for an exciting day of activities, hundreds of give-aways, and food and entertainment demonstrations. Sponsorships and exhibitor space are available for this event.
