Business Expo, cookout coming up

The Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce Business Expo is Thursday, May 1, at the trade center. The Expo is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“This is the 11th annual Business Expo and we are proud to be able to continue to offer this opportunity for exposure to our members and community,” said Beth Morrison, the chamber’s member services vice president.

Renz Nest Catering Co. and the Oakwood Café in conjunction with the chamber will host “Cookout on the Hill” as part of the Expo again this year. This cookout is in honor of National Small Business Week and takes the place of the traditional “Cookout on the Corner.”

“The combination of Cookout and Expo is a natural fit and continues to be a huge success. Cookout’s mission to recognize small business and the Business Expo’s position as the largest opportunity for small businesses to be showcased in northwest Georgia is a great marriage,” said Morrison. “We expect crowds of more than 600 attendees during Expo this year. We are excited to be able to work with local and regional business partners to make this event a success.”

City Entertainment is also back as a partner to entertain the crowd. Owner P.J. Poston helps host the event from a center stage.

“The element of excitement that City Entertainment brings to the Expo makes the event more fun and interactive. We are so excited about this event and being able to help Dalton businesses connect in a variety of ways.” said Morrison.

The Business Expo theme this year is “Technology Trends.” Individuals will be able to learn about the variety of wonderful offerings in the county or show off their company’s products and services while networking and growing their business.

Although admission to the event is free, there is a charge to be an exhibitor. The cost is $225 for an exhibit space.

Only chamber members may exhibit in Business Expo and space is limited. Call the chamber at (706) 712-0949 to reserve an exhibit space for your business or email morrison@daltonchamber.org.
