It is an annual tradition with a 25 year history of offering businesses an opportunity to showcase their wares to Monroe County. This year was no exception to the excellent one day, B2B trade show that Business Expo has always been known for.
The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce vendor booth experienced steady traffic throughout the event. It was great visiting with current and potential members, plus the general public as they strolled by. Many attendees were pleased to learn of the new and extensive menu of programs and events The Chamber has scheduled this year. They also had the opportunity to learn about the augmented benefits Chamber membership has to offer with the new Membership Investment Level model.
The BIRA sponsored Taste of Expo was a good example of “the best in local food”. Plus it was tasty. That was obvious with the plates of food being devoured all around.
This is the part of the Expo that really draws a crowd.
I met new contacts, potential business members and was able to re-connect with others that I have not seen in awhile. That is what the Expo is all about. Again, kudos to Business Expo 2010 for a job well done.
