“Hopefully this will develop new business relationships with our local businesses and individuals doing business with each other,” he said. “Thus the theory that dollars spent are kept local.”
Bell said there have been lots of success stories in the past but some of the most successful have been booth-to-booth networking and contacts.
The expo is set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday at Harvey Convention Center, at 2000 W. Front St.
The first expos had around 40 venders and today they have close to 150 each year, Bell said. There are a variety of vender businesses and organizations. Bell said there were around 5,000 people who attended last year and they expect close to the same this year.
It will be held at 11:30 a.m. at Green Acres Baptist Church CrossWalk Conference Center, 1607 Troup Highway.
