EXPO – Saturday, March 19th, 9 am – 3 pm
The Rockford Chamber of Commerce is proud to be celebrating its 12th Annual Community EXPO in 2016! The date is fast approaching with plenty of excitement and entertainment for the attendees. The EXPO will again be featuring four $500 cash giveaways and a trip giveaway – a favorite among attendees.
This year’s EXPO will be allowing selling at the event in the EXPO Marketplace. The designated area will allow selling by only Chamber members, and is a sure-fire way to add a benefit to both attendees and exhibitors. Also again this year is A Taste of Rockford. Attendees will be able to purchase a sample of the tasty fare that participating restaurants will be offering.
Also featured will be over 140 exhibitors highlighting the best businesses that the Rockford area has to offer. The event is always hosted in the beautiful facilities of Rockford High School, 4100 Kroes, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., Saturday, March 19.
“The atmosphere at the high school is always electric,” says Linda Southwick, Rockford Chamber of Commerce Executive Director. “It is fun to watch the exhibitors interact with the public and share their business stories with them. And it is fun to watch everyone enjoy such a wonderful community event that includes entertainment, music and giveaways.”
Taking the stage will be a variety of musical groups from Rockford elementary, middle and high schools.
The EXPO is a win-win for both the exhibitors and the thousands who stream through the doors for this popular event. Face-to-face networking is always a great way to build relationships for business owners and the EXPO allows attendees to realize the enormous variety of quality services and products offered in the Rockford area.
