Business Expo

2014 Business Expo

The Rockford Chamber will be sponsoring a Business Expo in June. The Chamber has discussed numerous ways to attract more attendees, in order to provide our businesses as many opportunities as possible to promote their business.

The 2014 Business Expo will be held during Community Days on June 13 and will be held at the Rockford Community Building on Friday from 5:30 – 9:00 pm. The event will be announced throughout the evening to encourage all those attending Community Days to visit the Business Expo as well.

In another effort to attract more attendees and potential customers, the Chamber will be giving away $100 in Chamber Gift Certificates to one lucky attendee. To qualify for the drawing, each attendee will be required to visit at least a specified number of vendors and get their entry form initialed, or stamped, in order to be eligible for the drawing.

This will be a great opportunity for you to promote your business to potential new customers.

The Chamber is opening up booth spaces to our own Chamber members before we open it up to other area business.

DEADLINE: The deadline to get your booth space reserved as a Chamber member is April 10th. After April 10th, we will be opening the event up to other area businesses as well.

THE FEE: for Chamber members will be $20.00. The fee for non-chamber members will be $35.00. Space is limited and the booth space is open on a first come first serve basis.

Please contact Lisa Kuhn by phone at 419-363-3032 ext 1 or by email at to reserve your space!

The Business Expo was created in 2005 as a way for the Chamber to say thank you to the existing Chamber businesses in and around Rockford by giving them a platform to feature their businesses.

An Expo committee was created and the Business Expo was planned. It was held at the Rockford Community building and 44 businesses were featured. The event attracted over 300 people. The business expo has become a bi-annual event held in the Spring of the year.
